Introduction to Parent-Child Visits

Child Welfare Information Gateway and the National Resource Center for Permanency and Family Connections (NRCPFC) partnered to provide this free, self-guided online training on facilitating visits between parents and children involved with the child welfare system. The training promotes safety, permanency, and well-being of children and families by providing information to help child welfare professionals maintain family connections when children are in out-of-home care. Participants will learn how parent-child visits can enhance efforts toward family reunification and improve outcomes for children and families. The training includes best practices regarding parent-child visits for child welfare workers, supervisors, and related professionals. This training is based on workshops and materials developed by Rose Marie Wentz, NRCPFC Consultant. Information Gateway and the NRCPFC are both services of the Children's Bureau, Administration for Children and Families, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
