The ABCs of FTMs, FPTs, FPTMs, & More! An Introduction to Meetings and Staffings Facilitated by the Department of Children and Families (DCFS)

FTMs, FPTs, FPTMs, oh my:

Do you know what each of these acronyms stand for?

Do you know the goals for each meeting?

Preservation and Transition Staffings: Do you know who may participate in these staffings?

Do you know their purpose?

Whether you answered “yes” or “no” to any of these questions, come on down to the May CIP Café! You will learn about the goals, processes, and policies for DCFS-facilitated meetings and staffings in a Child in Need of Care case. These meetings and staffings are an important part of out-of-court advocacy and may have a significant impact on the trajectory of a case.

FREE – Approved for 1 hour of CLE and Social Work CEU – general credit.
