More About Me

About Me

Rachel Galanter (MPH, Maternal and Child Health from UNC-CH and Bachelors in Psychology from Columbia University), leads El Futuro's technical assistance and consultation program in addition to privately providing training and coaching. A NC Parenting Education Network certified Parenting Educator, she has over 25 years of experience with children, youth, and families in a variety of settings including shelters, transitional housing, home visiting, crisis intervention, and schools.  She uses Motivational Interviewing, the Community Resiliency Model and bio-feedback to help families address the stress and emotional issues that can be barriers to making change.  She is committed to empowering families to build on their strengths and believes that families make changes when they can see how the benefits of change outweigh the consequences of not changing. She has employed proven models—Attachment Bio-Behavioral Catch Up, SafeCare,  Language Is the Key, Triple P and Parent Child Interaction Therapy—to  help families transform and to improve relationships between caregivers and children.  She provides trainings on multiple topics including parent engagement, cultivating resilience, cross cultural communication, coaching and child abuse prevention. In addition to her local efforts, she is a sought-after speaker for national conferences including: the National Birth to Three Institute, the National Head Start Association Parent Engagement Institute, the National Exchange Clubs Symposium, and to her peers at the Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers Forum.  In 2016 she was part of the Training Team for the MINT Training of New Trainers in Montreal. Prevent Child Abuse North Carolina awarded her the Donna J Stone award in 2013 for going above and beyond to support families in their efforts to provide their children with the safe, stable, nurturing environments they need if they are going to be successful.  In additional to her professional work on behalf of families, Rachel was a foster parent for a decade and added two daughters (and now four grandchildren) to her family from that time.
