May 7, 2024

The Office of Client Advocacy Foster Care Ombudsman program is bringing back one of its most consistently popular trainings, Advocating Without Being Adversarial, for an info session presented online via Microsoft Teams on Monday, May 20, 2024, at 7pm. 

We will be discussing ways to advocate for your foster children while preserving your relationships with the other members of the child welfare team.  We will offer some tips and tricks for creating and maintaining your credibility, which we have found is key to getting your voice heard.  And we will be offering instruction on how to write effective court reports.  An hour of training credit will be available to foster parents who attend.
