Traditional supervised visits can be stressful and cause confusion for young children after separating from their birth family.  QPI-MN invites you to an exciting opportunity on Tuesday, July 24th to learn about Fostering Relationships, a model that provides intentional family interactions for young children in out of home placement.

Outcomes of Fostering Relationships:
  • Strengthened communication and relationship between caregivers (foster parents / relatives) and birth parents.
  •  Birth families receive the necessary support that promotes responsive interactions with their child that out of home placement impacts.
  • Children experience greater consistency in caregiving between the birth and foster homes.
  • Reunification is improved by the lasting connections developed with the child and family.

About the Training:
This 2.5 hour training will be conducted by Carole Shauffer, Founder of Quality Parenting Initiative. The intended audience is foster parents, birth parents, relative caregivers and all individuals and agencies who work with young children within out of home placement. This training includes a practice component of the Fostering Relationships principles that were designed after the Attachment and Bio-behavioral Catch-Up (ABC) model. ABC was developed byDr. Mary Dozier, Ph.D., at the University of Delaware, and her lab after studying the effects of early adversity on development in early childhood. The ABC intervention has been shown to be effective in improving young children’s attachment, biology (cortisol levels), executive functioning, which includes memory, reasoning problem solving and planning, and emotion regulation.

This training is geared towards families with children ages 6 months to 6 years old.
