FOSTER PARENTING BOOT CAMP Course
The 4-week program will take you from confused and overwhelmed to ready to tackle foster parenting like a pro.
Let's face it–there's nothing more confusing than lack of information, only to feel like you're in the dark and never actually part of your child's team. And there's nothing more disheartening than not knowing where to turn, or a clear path to follow when you have questions. That is what Foster Parenting Boot Camp is all about. Providing a path, guide book style, to lead you to answers.
Below are the four phases the FOSTER PARENTING BOOT CAMP will guide you through:
- Help: How to navigate the foster system, roles of team members, where or how to get help for your foster children.
- Order: Resources and steps where you can go for answers. Who to call when your child's needs are not being met. A flow chart of the system.
- Parent: Identify common adjustment behaviors and action steps. Tips for keeping your foster child connected to his or her birth relatives, and organizing your child's information using our “In the Beginning” binder section pages.
- Embrace: Reunification, transitioning to a new home, adoption, and grief. Coping mechanisms to deal with the emotional aspect of each potential stage. Real-world outcome examples.
