Engaging Children & Families

March 20: 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Engagement with children and families may seem like a simple concept, but it is much more complex.  This training focuses on the importance of family engagement, which involves all aspects of interaction with youth and families in a deliberate manner to make well-informed decisions about safety, permanency, lifelong connections, and well-being. Family engagement is important to ensure the child’s safety, stabilize the child’s family when in crisis, prevent prolonged placement in foster care, and provide support for the child when ageing out of foster care placement is necessary. Tools and resources such as Xtreme Recruitment and Permanency Roundtables will be explored throughout the training.
