Guest Speaker: Jaymi Matranga, MSW
Jaymi Matranga is a full‐time Social Worker, a foster and adoptive parent, and a former foster youth. At the age of 13, she was removed from her home. Jaymi has a passion for child welfare reform and foster care advocacy. Jaymi and her husband, Joshua, started parenting when they were just 19 and 21 years old. Today, Jaymi is a kinship, foster, and adoptive parent along with her husband. They have raised a total of ﬁve children through guardianship, birth, adoption, and foster care. Jaymi has a Master’s Degree in Social Work with a concentration in Administration & Community Development and a Child Welfare specialization.
As caregivers and professionals, we want to see the children and youth in our care succeed. However, we often lack the language and tools to instill motivation in them. Motivational Interviewing (MI) is an evidence‐based counseling method that helps resolve ambivalent feelings to ﬁnd the internal motivation that is needed to change behavior. In this interactive training, participants will be able to utilize the concepts of MI to support foster youth as they reach their goals.
