Resource Family Pre-Approval Training (Part 2)

The Resource Family Pre-Approval Training helps you to understand the many aspects of supporting a youth “in care” in the foster care system, and it will furnish you with vital information about the youths who come into the foster care system. This class boosts your knowledge and confidence to meet the challenge of taking youth into your home and to be sure you are ready to follow through on the commitment.

This Part 2 of 2 trainings includes the topics of youth in care that identify as LGBTQ+, youth that has been commercially sexually exploited, the “3-5-7 Model of Grief and Loss” by Darla Henry, Trauma Competent Caregiving, working with non-minor dependents, the sexual health rights as covered in Senate Bill 89, the expectations of resource parents’ involvement with their youth in care, and what visits and paperwork look like in your home when you take in foster youth.
