Abstract/Description:

Fostering Joy brings together family members and professionals with the shared aim of finding, promoting, and celebrating “the joy in the journey” among families of children who are deaf or hard of hearing (DHH), including children who are deaf with disabilities (DWD). This presentation, conducted jointly by a parent leader and two professionals, will address why it can be difficult for service providers to broach the topic of “joy” with families and some strategies for doing so. It will highlight some of the science of joy and associated states, such as gratitude and mindfulness, as well as discuss why a “focus on joy” is beneficial for families and the professionals who work with them. Further, the presentation will provide suggestions for supporting families in finding and cultivating joy in their everyday experiences, even – or perhaps especially - during challenging times.

As we strive to further grow an inclusive and inviting movement for all who are privileged to work with and know children who are DHH or DWD and their families, we invite you to join the Fostering Joy movement. All it takes is desire to ‘be mindful of being joyful’ and to ‘spread the word’ about the importance of fostering joy in whatever way works for you. Additional information will be provided for any family member or professional who wishes to delve deeper into this topic and engage more directly.

Learning Objectives:

· List at least two science-based benefits of focusing on and experiencing joy.

· Identify two strategies for discussing joy with families, whether as a professional or a parent leader.

· Describe two or more “implementable actions” to engage more fully with the Fostering Joy movement.
