This training provides introductory level information needed to successfully become a foster/kinship/adoptive parent.

Participants will also gain an understanding of how to work alongside child welfare agencies and a family of origin while providing a nurturing and therapeutic environment to offset the impact of maltreatment on children and youth in the foster care system.

Additional topics covered in the training include: child abuse and neglect, child development, discipline, creating permanency for children and youth, cultural considerations, and foster/kinship/adoptive family preparation.

October 7, 2016 “Consequences of Maltreatment for Child Development” This interactive, classroom-based course will help you understand the impact of trauma on the development of children and youth who have experienced child abuse and neglect.

Trauma and post-trauma adversities can profoundly influence children’s acquisition of developmental competencies and their capacity to reach important developmental milestones in domains such as cognitive functioning, emotional regulation, and interpersonal relationships. Your own experiences in caring for and working with children and youth will be a resource during this training; you will be asked to consider the impact that abuse and neglect might have on the children and youth you are caring for and working with, and how this impact might manifest in a child or youth’s behavior. You will also be introduced to videos, interactive activities, case studies, and written resources that you can access to explore the impact of abuse, neglect, and other forms of trauma.

And, most importantly, you will explore the guidelines and strategies that caregivers, caseworkers, therapists, and the entire child welfare system can use when trauma and its developmental consequences have been identified. Understanding these guidelines and strategies will allow us all to think critically about our decision making at critical points in a case. To create safety, permanency, and well-being for children and youth, it is necessary for child welfare to be trauma-informed as a system. For that reason, we strongly encourage you to register for this course together with members of your county’s multidisciplinary team.

DATE & TIME: Friday, October 7, 2016     8:30am to 4:30pm    (6.5 training hours)
