Thanks for joining us to discuss ideas of how to engage as many relatives as possible at the time the child enters custody in order to maximize family connectedness and involvement.
September 1, 1:00 - 2:00 pm CST
This session provided an in-depth look at how to re-engage family members who may have been dismissed by the system years ago when their relative entered care. They may be angry, afraid, or just plain tired of fighting when their voices haven’t been heard. Participants joined us to learn about some of our tried and true engagement techniques.
September 8, 1:00 - 2:00 pm CST
This session was pretty straightforward and focused exclusively on strategies to overcome all the many challenges and barriers to family placement. We know there are many and our goal was to arm you with strategies to overcome them all!
September 15, 1:00 - 2:00 pm CST
When preparing for a house guest it takes some planning. The same is true when a child moves to the home of a relative. How can you ensure the child and family are set up for success? This session provided an overview of how to identify needs and solidify a robust support system for a smooth transition for the child and relative provider.
September 22, 1:00 - 2:00 pm CST
You have connected with family, found great family placement options, laid the groundwork for placement and now you just need the buy-in of your team before the child can move! This session reviewed strategies to help you advocate for the child’s family placement and collaborate with your team to achieve successful outcomes.
