This three day training will guide Foster Care and Adoption Specialists as well as contractors, through the process of assessing and preparing potential resource families to meet the needs of children from the child welfare system. Day one and two participants are guided through an assessment process. These two days build on the philosophy of empowerment, cultural competency and address the impact of separation and loss on children. Day three is dedicated to training participants in the usage of OKDHS forms related to the assessment process.
Day three is available as a stand-alone workshop to those wanting a refresher in assessment forms by enrolling in CW 3027. Workers must have completed CW 1027 BEFORE they are eligible to take CW 3027.
Training Group: Participation is limited to Foster Care and Adoption Specialists and Contractors.
