Lethbridge Finding Family Boot Camp

April 4-7 2017
9:00 a.m.  4:00 p.m.
Lethbridge Lodge
320 Scenic Dr. S, Lethbridge, AB T1J 4B4

Family Finding Boot Camps are four-day immersion workshops for staff, supervisors and managers learning the philosophy, framework and skills of Family Finding practice. Participants work in small and medium-sized teams, actually practicing Family Finding for children and youth who are in out-of-home care or supporting families who are new to child welfare, using their own files. Participants leave the immersion experience having:
-learned and practiced the skills of Family Finding,
-developed a sense of confidence in their use of the skills, and most importantly
-gained the understanding that Family Finding for most youth and families takes less than 20 hours and can be completed in weeks rather than months.

Family Finding is an evidence-based six-step model that responds to those involved in the child intervention system. Research on a variety of Family Finding projects has demonstrated that Family Finding works to significantly increase the number of relatives and other important known adult connections for children in care and leads to an average of five to eight offers of help from these adults.

Family Finding has proven to be an effective program for finding and engaging relatives and significant adults for children required to come into care to maintain their safety. Family Finding strategies align with the Child Intervention Practice Framework and formally complement the Signs of Safety® approach to child intervention currently being implemented in Alberta.

Child Intervention staff (CI, DFNA, CS) and contracted agency staff are encouraged to attend. Learn how the Family Finding process will augment your current practice and assist you in connecting children with significant family members. This foundational training in the Family Finding process is suitable for Child Intervention staff from front line workers to senior managers.

Registration:CI & DFNA staff should register through OLE.
