Locating and Engaging Relatives of Children in Foster Care: Creating a Network of Support

 
Registration deadline: August 4th

Gayle Flavin, LCSW
Director of Program Implementation
Foster & Adoptive Care Coalition

When a child is removed from the care of their parent(s), social service professionals may be challenged to quickly find and purposefully engage with the other family members who could be key to the child's future.

This interactive workshop will help you become familiar with the key tools you can use to locate relatives of children in foster care. You will learn concrete ways to initiate the engagement process with relatives, while examining how our own biases can impact engagement with relatives. Finally, we will review the evidence supporting how engagement of relatives correlates to positive outcomes for the children.

Class size is limited to 40.
