If you have gotten your license to be a Resource Parent within the last couple of years, this class is for you! Long-time FKCE trainer Carrie McAuliffe Sandoval and long-time Foster, turned Resource Parent, Wendy Homan, designed this new series for our “newer” families. Real-life scenarios will be used each week as case studies!
The 4-week class will explore:
1) Building Your Support System (family & friends, professional contacts, when to reach out)
2) Creating Responsible Resource Families (rights & responsibilities, acronyms, record- keeping)
3) Welcoming a Child/Sibling Group into your Home (the “First Day”, communication, positive discipline, resiliency)
4) Transitions (children arriving & departing, grief & loss, birth parent interaction)
Participants will receive a certificate for 12 hours of training upon completion of the series. Meets Foster VC Kids criteria for “teaming.”
Please RSVP to Leticia at firstname.lastname@example.org (Please put Nuts and Bolts in the subject line and indicate if you are a foster/resource parent/kinship provider in your RSVP)
