This 2 hour Coaching Session for Caregivers builds upon information contained in Caregivers Core Training (CCT) and provides in-depth training around the need for visitation from the child’s perspective, the caregiver’s role in visitation, and how caregivers can support the child to help visitation to be as successful as possible. Caregivers will more deeply understand the need to support children’s relationships with birth families and gain skills to successfully team with others involved in the child’s visitation. This coaching session includes activities that allow the caregiver to assess the effects of visitation on the child(ren) in their care and create a plan to address any concerns which may arise in the future.
Coaching sessions are utilized to address a caregiver's specific needs and build specific skills at their convenience. Just contact us to request a time for session to be scheduled.
