Aaron Ivchenko of Child Find has used Integration Institute resources and information to strengthen his agency’s healthy relationship education and initiate and participate in new healthy relationship partnerships and projects. Child Find complements its primary focus -- addressing the crisis after an abduction -- with its Parent Help Program, which focuses on prevention. After attending an Integration Institute, Aaron led Child Find in enhancing the Parent Help Program with additional information about conflict resolution and parenting skills.
Aaron extended Child Find’s commitment to healthy relationship skills by launching a new project to teach these skills to families. He is also working on a new project to strengthen parent-child relationships through effective, non-corporal discipline strategies. Aaron also contributed to a New York domestic violence collaboration, using information from the Resource Center website to help update domestic violence protocols.
