Resource Family Approval Pre-Service Training

Title IV-E Trainings provided in partnership with Chabot-Los Positas Community College District 

Understanding the components of foster care, kin, and adoption is crucial to seeing if this is a right path for you. This training will help participants understand what fostering and adopting is all about and furnishing you with 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.

Topics include: the role of Community Care Licensing (CCL), Regulations and reporting requirements, Prudent Parenting, youth in care that identify as LGBTQ+, youth that have been commercially sexually exploited, the “3-5-7 Model of Grief and Loss” by Darla Henry, Trauma Competent Caregiving, the effects of abuse on youth, supporting relationships with youth and family, and finally the topic of permanency and what that means for youth in care.
