Training Credit for Therapy

The active participation of a foster caregiver in the child's therapy is an important part of the child's healing process.  Foster caregivers receive training about a variety of mental health issues and other issues related to foster care through their involvement in the therapy process.  Often, as a result of their participation in a child's therapy, foster parents are receiving training on the issues and being dealt with in therapy.  To receive training credit for participating in therapy, have the therapist complete the Training Credit for Therapy form.
