With the increase of Covid-19 in California, and a statewide shelter-in-place order, entire communities have experienced disruption. In the context of younger foster youth needs, these changes have resulted in changing practices in addressing the needs of foster youth who are entering the child welfare system or transitioning placement. This training reviews some of the service approach considerations who work with young and school-age children who have entered the foster care system through Alameda County Social Services.

This training will focus on enhancing capabilities of telehealth to provide services to foster youth. Participants will discuss strategies to communicate with foster youth and their caregivers and engage them in telehealth services. By offering online resources and tools, providers will learn strategies for screening and providing services.
