New Legal Resources for Incorporating the Family First Act into Your Practice in 2020 (Tue. 14 Jan, 2020 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm)

New Legal Resources for Incorporating the Family First Act into Your Practice in 2020 

In Fall 2019, more provisions of the Family First Prevention Services Act became effective in states across the country. This webinar will highlight two new resources: a Family First Legal Guide and a Tool for Engaging the Legal Community in Family First Implementation. The Legal Guide is written for attorneys, judges, magistrates, and court personnel, and provides an overview about how the Family First Act changes federal child welfare law, identifies opportunities to use the Act in legal advocacy and judicial decision-making, and offers guidance on supporting effective  implementation in local communities. The Tool for Engaging the Legal Community can facilitate dialogue between child welfare agency implementation teams and the legal community to address potential unintended consequences and maximize positive impact for children and families. Learn more about these tools and ways to access opportunities available under the Family First Act.

Relationships & Intimacy Workshop for Family Members/Caregivers - Monroe (Fri. 17 Jan, 2020 9:30 am - 11:30 am)

This training is for parents and caregivers of people developmental and intellectual disabilities.

Sexuality is a basic part of being human, and sexual development begins when we are born and continues throughout our lives.  Many family members and caregivers struggle with discussing the topic of relationships, intimacy, sexuality and safety and also with how to present the information in a way that the person with developmental disability will understand. Thus, it is necessary to empower caregivers so they can empower the people they care about. 

People with a developmental disabilities deserve to learn about their physical, emotional, and social growth as it relates to their sexual development.  They should have freedom to ask questions and be supported to learn in an environment that is non-judgmental, free of fear, shame, and exploitation. This will be an open and honest discussion about sexuality and supporting your family member or the person you support to feel safe.

Approved for 2 SW General CEU hours by LA NASW and for 2 Legal CLE hours
