Becoming a Resource Parent – Part 1: A RFA Pre-Approval Training

Participants in this training will learn key concepts related to trauma-informed care and the essential elements of trauma-informed caregiving. In addition, we will discuss the expectations, skills, roles and responsibilities of resource parents/families. Participants will also learn about how to support birth family relationships, address safety issues regarding contact and expectations related to the reasonable prudent parent standard.

The Seneca foster care pre-approval training series is primarily designed for prospective ISFC (Intensive Services Foster Care) resource parents with the purpose of developing or strengthening the knowledge, understanding and skills essential when caring for traumatized foster youth with intensive needs.
