Take a closer look into the life of a Resource Family through this two hour training with Kimberly Contreras.  Offered quarterly, this webinar will review the formal definition of a Resource Family, and discuss the clinical implications of caring for a child through the Child Welfare System.  Permanency options will be discussed, as well as the role of a Resource Family and how that role and use of language changes toward the child when decisions are made in court as to the permanency outcome for the child.  This webinar provides an opportunity for Resource Families to ask questions in a safe space that offers support and clarity.  Looking forward to meeting you!
