  1. More Than They Signed Up For: Helping Foster Parents Understand and Meet Childrens' Attachment Needs »

    April 23, 2018 - 4:15pm

    Foster parents often assume that caring for their foster child will be similar to raising children who have always lived in a safe, stable home. The sheer determination and work that it takes to help a maltreated child begin to feel safe is often shocking and overwhelming to the family. This training will consider the ways we can train and support foster parents to decode, understand, and meet the deep need for human connectedness and felt safety that children residing in foster care require. This training will utilize exercises, small and large group discussions, and visual displays.

    Registration for this course is closed. Visit the CE Course Catalog for more offerings.
