 Caring for the Caregiver

Foster parents are your greatest resource. Knowing what they need will guide you in providing support so they can keep up this important work. Join us to discuss factors in engaging foster parents, including relative caregivers, regarding changing family roles, permanency planning and co-parenting with birth parents. We’ll also address the benefits and challenges of kinship care—for children, caregivers, birth parents and service providers. The afternoon will include time for sharing and case consultation with your colleagues.
