A best practice training for adoptive, foster and kinship caregivers.
Foster and adoptive families who care for children who have been separated from their parents because of abuse, neglect or abandonment are especially vulnerable to reports of abuse and neglect. The children we parent have trauma histories and sometimes exhibit unusual behaviors. The removal of children and foster care is also highly emotional for all involved. In a system designed to protect children, we often find ourselves scared, without support and on the wrong end of the system.
In this training we will break down Child Protective Services process, including Family Assessment Response Units. We’ll highlight several things adoptive and foster parents can do to protect themselves from false abuse allegations. Finally, we’ll discuss what you can and should do when you find yourself the subject of a report of abuse or neglect.
