The effects of the coronavirus are being felt in extreme ways by children in foster care who’ve already experienced a great deal of disruption.
Family visitation is the essential connection between parents and their children. But stay-at-home orders and other new requirements have limited this important bonding time, creating distress for some families.
In this webinar, we share our more-than 20 years’ experience conducting supervised family visits for children in foster care to help strengthen family bonds, create quality experiences during virtual visits, and maintain fragile family bonds even through the ‘new normal’ brought on by COVID-19.
After this workshop, you’ll:
• Understand the unique vulnerabilities facing children in out-of-home placement (foster care)
• Recognize new stressors impacting children and parents in the child welfare system during COVID-19
• Recognize when parents may be experiencing insecurities and deficits
• Learn new skills that can enhance parent-child interactions during virtual visits
