This training is the first of four sessions designed to prepare resource families to work with youth in the foster care system. Participants will receive a better understanding of the Child Welfare System structure and explore how to provide a well-planned, safe, and secure environment designed to meet children’s individual and unique needs. Participants will review how children and youth who have been a part of the child welfare system need stability and continuity that can be provided by foster, adoptive, and kinship care families.
