This training acknowledges the complexities associated with Relative/Kinship caregiving through fostering and adoption. Topics will include divided loyalties, redefining roles and relationships, setting boundaries with parents and other relatives, the range of emotions caregivers can feel and how children who have experienced trauma, separation, or loss can impact a caregiver’s own well-being. Strategies for how to manage family dynamics and conflicts, identify triggers and effectively manage stress are shared.
This training is for Ampersand kinship caregivers who are completing the home study assessment process. Please consult with your permanency specialist before signing up.
