IEP versus 504 Plans

Caregiver Coaching Background & Rationale (Session 1) (Tue. 6 Nov, 2018 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm)

Caregiver Coaching Background & Rationale (Session 1) 

NEW 3-Part Virtual Event Series

Coaching is an interaction style used to build the capacity of parents and other caregivers to promote child learning and development within and across typical routines and caregiving contexts. This one-hour virtual event will focus on the background and rationale for the use of coaching by early intervention providers, Early Head Start and Head Start home visitors, and others who work closely with parents/caregivers. The use of coaching fosters social-emotional well-being by supporting the parent’s responsiveness to the child in ways that have been shown to result in positive developmental outcomes.

KINSHIP TRADITIONS OF CARING AND COLLABORATING: A TRAUMA-INFORMED MODEL OF PRACTICE (Wed. 7 Nov, 2018 8:30 am - 4:00 pm)

KINSHIP TRADITIONS OF CARING AND COLLABORATING:A TRAUMA-INFORMED MODEL OF PRACTICE

A Specially Designed Training for Public and Private Agency

Supervisors and Child Welfare Workers
New Orleans, Louisiana
November 7 – 8, 2018
8:30 am – 4:00 pm
CWLA invites you to participate in the Kinship Traditions of Caring and Collaborating: A Trauma-Informed Model of Practice Training.  The two-day training aims to 1) provide public and private agency child welfare workers with skills to support kinship families who are caring for their younger family members, and 2) offer supervisors strategies to support staff in their work with kinship families. The training program embraces a trauma-informed model of practice that helps agencies ensure a shared vision, mission, objectives, values, strengths-based language, and best practice strategies to help achieve child safety, well-being, and permanency outcomes in the best interests of kinship caregiving families. This training is adapted from a research to practice curriculum that has been field-tested nationally.
Training objectives include:
1. Demonstrate why and how kinship care has become a policy choice and practice challenge;
2. Provide the rationale for collaboration as a trauma-informed model of practice;
3. Identify and provide examples of nine major issues of concern that require collaboration with kinship caregivers (including legal, health/mental health, child behavior, family relationships, fair and equal treatment, and more);
4. Demonstrate five competencies essential for collaborating with kinship caregivers, including addressing the dynamics of attachment versus authority, and demographic and cultural diversity;
5. Apply the five competencies to specific phases of service delivery, including engaging families and securing community supports;
6. Demonstrate specific collaboration practice tools with an emphasis on family assessment and trauma-informed parenting;
7. Share strategies that support the transfer of skills from training to practice, including advocacy.
The training is designed for public and private agency child welfare workers and supervisors, representatives of kinship support groups, navigators, and advocacy programs, as well as staff who work with mental health, juvenile justice, and school programs. Kinship caregivers are also warmly welcomed.

Assessing Program Impact through Cost Analysis - A Conversation with Practitioners (Thu. 8 Nov, 2018 2:00 pm - 3:15 pm)

Assessing Program Impact through Cost Analysis - A Conversation with Practitioners

Cost Analysis adds to the important anecdotal stories about the power and value of prevention programming by helping us quantify the efficiency and impact of that programming in economic terms. Many of you are aware that FRIENDS has worked with the University of Kansas Center for Public Partnerships and Research to create tools and guidance to engage in cost analysis. This call is the latest installment in our effort to help folks get the most from these tools. 

Programs have a strong desire to communicate the benefits of the services they provide to families in ways that speak to policy makers, funders and other stake holders. Cost Analysis can be a powerful resource towards addressing that need. Please invite local service providers who may benefit from exploring cost analysis. You may forward this registration information to locally funded program coordinators.
