Entering foster care can be the most traumatic experience of a child’s life, even more traumatic than the abuse that led to the removal. The transition from removal, to reconnection, to reunification (permanency) is a fragile process full of emotion for all who are part of the process. Historically, foster care was considered a rescuing operation designed to remove children from harmful, abusive, or neglectful homes. However, this traditional role has undergone tremendous change. Foster parents are now expected to facilitate visits and encourage and participate in other forms of interaction between foster children and their birth families. There is a growing expectation that foster parents will actively support primary parents in their reunification efforts. The goal of this workshop is to provide information about why the involvement of foster caregivers with primary families is critical for the child, as well as for both families. This training will also enhance skills of foster caregivers in engaging primary families, managing conflict, defusing issues, and developing strategies of support in order to expedite permanency for children. This workshop is CSWMFT Board approved for Social Work and Counselor CEUs.
