9:45 Registration and Refreshments

10:00am- 1:00pm Class 1 – From Adolescence to Independence: Preparing Adolescents for Independent Living (3 category I CEUs)

To become successful adults, youth must have a positive self-esteem, feel connected to a positive community of support, have a sense of purpose in the world, and believe that they have the power to control their destiny. The ability to make decisions and take a positive life direction promotes action and productivity later in life. Yet, the child welfare system often errs in the direction of taking charge when youth are making decisions.

The 1999 Chafee Foster Care Independence Program (CFCIP) was created to ensure that young people involved in the foster care system have access to additional education, training, housing assistance, counseling and other services so that they may become successful adults. Through interactive discussions, real case scenarios and group activities participants will gain an understanding of the Chafee Act and develop the skills necessary to foster independent living skills in adolescents and young adults. (Trainer Tara Rice, LCSW-C, Director the TARA Center)

Class 2- 1:45pm-4:45pm

Teaching Parenting Skills to Unskilled Parents (3 Category I CEUs)

Most poor parenting comes down to a lack of understanding of child development and extreme frustration. Even parents who are physically abusive often justify their actions by saying that their child is abnormally stubborn or just a bad kid who doesn’t listen. They genuinely feel that excessive physical discipline is the only way they can “correct” their children and prevent them from falling into a life of failure or crime. With the right approach most parents can be taught to effectively parent their children.

This training, appropriate for anyone who works with parents or caregivers and children, will explore effective methods for training parents, including the highly regarded Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT). PCIT is a family-centered treatment approach which has been proven effective for abused and at-risk children between the ages of 2½ to 12 and their biological or foster caregivers. This interactive training will familiarize professionals with parent teaching techniques and help them understand the uses and limitations of teaching parenting skills. (Trainer, Jeffrey Davidson, LCSW-C, LICSW, Director CE You!)
