Join us for a new training on bridging the gap between birth and foster parents. For years in child welfare, a major gap has existed between birth and foster parents. Fueled by fear, mistrust, defensiveness, and trauma, this gap in partnership causes children in the foster care system to suffer. Research shows that children thrive under consistency in parenting. Children need to see that all the adults in their lives work together and have their best interests at heart. Birth and foster parents who collaborate and build lasting relationships provide consistency and model healthy relationships for children. This training will explore specific strategies to bridge this gap and subsequently create better short and long-term outcomes for youth in foster care.
