Type of Class
Instructor: Tracy Thompson, Office of the Foster Care Ombudsperson
The California Office of the Foster Care Ombudsperson (OFCO) believes that high-quality Resource Families provide children and youth with new experiences to learn skills, take advantage of opportunities and develop healthy relationships while growing up in a stable, loving family and supportive community.
This interactive workshop will help Resource Families build knowledge and apply Reasonable and Prudent Parent Standards. It will also feature an in-depth session on Foster Youth Rights and include a review of federal and state laws as well as key definitions to provide clarity in how current legislation is impacting the foster care community. This workshop will not only go in-depth on what rights youth have while in foster care and ways providers can uphold them, but will also feature best practices for youth engagement and how to use rights to build rapport and empower youth. This is a workshop you should not miss!
