Event Details

This session will examine the role of foster parents and group home care providers in protecting the rights of children in out-of-home care. The concept of advocacy will be introduced and participants will review strategies to advocate for children in vulnerable circumstances as well as supporting children in out-of-home care to advocate for themselves. Participants will review widely accepted rights of children and youth, including survival, development, protection, and participation. Participants will identify practices which can be integrated in their current foster or group home setting.

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
