Resource Parent Took Kit: The Nuts & Bolts of Caregiving- NEW!

November 18, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Trainers: Carrie McAuliffe Sandoval & Wendy Homan

When: 4 Mondays October 21st, October 28th, November 4th and November 18th 6:00-9:00pm

Where: Kids & Families Together Resource Family Training Center 1317 Del Norte Road Suite 110, Camarillo

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 leticia_sandoval1@vcccd.edu (Please put Nuts and Bolts in the subject line and indicate if you are a foster/resource parent/kinship provider in your RSVP)
