A part of the #10thousandlives Movement.
It seems like every day we chat with a professional who is working to connect children with their families and communities. Issue is that they are doing this work in the midst of 1,000 demands and often in a system that has some pretty fierce barriers to family in place.
At the Institute, we live and breathe disruptive but respectful advocacy for children and families. We want to come alongside YOU.
We are proud to announce that we are starting a Family Search and Engagement Learning Collaborative!
The Learning Collaborative will consist of four sessions all listed below running every other week from Tuesday, April 6, 2021 to Tuesday, May 18, 2021. All sessions will run from 10:30am to 12:00pm CST.
Register here for this wonderful series today!
We hope to see you there! You can view details about the individual sessions below.
So much has changed in our day to day lives during the COVID-19 pandemic. Connecting in meaningful ways with children and families is no different. Child welfare professionals everywhere are resilient, and are discovering new, innovative ways to engage with families. Join us for a discussion about these issues as we brainstorm ways to spread the word about innovative techniques to workers to need them!
When working with youth in particular you have to find fun and creative ways to keep their minds engaged. How are you doing this? What tips can you share with others? Attend this session to learn about and share some great tips, tricks, and techniques to make the most out of your engagement with youth.
Engaging with family about their loved ones being in foster care is hard, under the best of circumstances. Professionals everywhere have skills and techniques that they use to make engagement with families meaningful and valuable for everyone involved. Please join us for this session as we work to spread these great ideas to as many people as possible!
Sometimes the only way to find particular family members is to dig deep, whether on the internet, or out in the field. Many child welfare workers have techniques in their toolkits to locate hard to find individuals. Come together with us to discuss these clever ways you have found family!
