CEU: Ministering to Birth Parents
February 20 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm EST
At Lifeline, we believe that God created families and designed them to be permanent. When families are separated by necessity, children need temporary families to make sure they are safe and loved. Foster Care was established as a way to help families get back on their feet when permanency is disrupted. The goal is for their family to be whole again. Therefore, if a child must be removed from his or her family, we believe it is also necessary for the foster parents to help and support getting the child back home with their family safely. To accomplish this, a healthy relationship between foster parents, birth families and DSS is of great importance.
This 2 hour training for foster parents will discuss the whys and hows of ministering to biological families and DSS. In addition to classroom style learning, be prepared to participate in activities designed to reinforce key objectives of the training and role play interactions between foster parents, biological parents and DSS.
Limited childcare will be provided by St. Helena’s. Preregistration for childcare is now closed.
Lifeline Children’s Services will provide CEU certificates via email for all participants for submission to your licensing agency.
