June Training Opportunities

AVAILABLE NOW “The Reasonable & Prudent Parent Standard” (Web-Based Training)1

 

On a daily basis, parents and caregivers are faced with decisions regarding their children’s safety, permanency, and well-being. These decisions require the use of judgment. The task is complicated for caregivers of children and youth in foster care given the number of laws, policies, guidelines, and rules that restrict activities and require potentially time-consuming approval processes.
Because most children or youth in foster care will likely struggle to experience a “normal” childhood or adolescence, the Reasonable & Prudent Parent Standard was enacted to create more normalcy for them. this self-paced web-based training will help you.

  • understand the Reasonable & Prudent Parent Standard (RPPS) as it is outlined in federal law and in Volume 7 (Social Services Rules);
  • consider how to work effectively with those involved in the care of children and youth in out-of-home placement to operationalize the Reasonable and Prudent Parent Standard in decisions that are made for children in out-of-home placements; and
  • reflect on how to interact with children and youth in a culturally responsive and supportive way to promote their healthy development and enhance their well-being.

If you will be a foster or out-of-home caregiver or provider in Colorado, you must obtain initial training in the reasonable and Prudent Parent Standard through this web-based training. You are then required to receive training annually from your certifying, sponsoring, or owning organization in applying the RPPS.
It is designed to help caseworkers working with children and youth in out-of-home care by enhancing their understanding of the RPPS and how they can support caregivers or providers in operationalizing it.

In this one-day class, you’ll collaborate with other participants to create a “wish list” of services. Then you’ll receive critical information and guidance on finding these services and developing relationships with hospitals, doctors, and therapists.
