Description

Contact with Birth Families Training

Facilitating contact with members of a child’s Birth Family can be one of the most challenging parts of the carer’s role. This course looks at the benefits of contact along with the challenges it presents. Crucially, we prepare carers for the range of problems it can present for them and the child, and look at strategies for managing these. We explore how to assess the impact of contact on the child, as this will change as they develop.
