Family Centered Practice Basics is designed for ALL EMPLOYEES of child and youth-serving agencies and systems, as well as interested family/youth representatives of those agencies (such as. foster parents, advisory board members, etc.).

Participants will learn how Family Centered concepts apply to their practice whatever their role in their agency or system, as well as to policies and programs to improve service to families.  Participants will come up with several behavioral changes they can immediately apply to their day to day work.


Learning Objectives:

  1. Explain what “Family-Centered Practice” means and identify practices that are family-centered
  2. Explain the definition of “family” from a family perspective
  3. Identify and give examples of the nine key elements of family-centered practice
