I am the co-founder and co-director of Apapacho, a non-profit organization that seeks to foster positive parental practices to guarantee that children achieve their developmental potential. We are convinced that Colombia can achieve a stable and long-lasting peace if we start building it from within our homes, and by being more empathetic, compassionate, and caring. To achieve our goals, we conduct theory-driven (free) workshops with parents, offer non-technical summaries of scientific research on parental practices for parents, practitioners and policy-makers, and encourage more research about parenting and child development. We also advocate for the legal protection of children to all forms of violence in Colombia and elsewhere. For more information, visit www.apapacho.com.co or contact me!
