Leading by Convening: A Blueprint for Authentic Engagement

Virtual Webinar/Training


The PA Care Partnership, a Statewide System of Care Grant, is pleased to present this online webinar/training for Leading by Convening, facilitated by Joanne Cashman, Ed.D. of the National Association of State Directors of Special Education (NASDSE)  in collaboration with the PA Community of Practice on Mental Health.

The Leading By Convening training occurred over three sessions and these were recorded to be shared so that youth, family, and system partners could view the trainings, and build an understanding of the Leading by Convening model. 

Leading by Convening is about shaping traditional meetings in a new way, focusing on content, and building relationships!

Participants will be provided with effective tools to help:

  • Improve skills to authentically engage all team members, including diverse families
  • Build support for shared work with youth, families, and system partners
  • Address the relationship-based aspects of systems change
