The Canadian Foster Family Association has revised and updated Safeguarding Foster Families – Preventing Allegations of Abuse in Foster Care. The purpose of this training is to stimulate thinking about allegations and how allegations of abuse can, and should be handled so that people involved are protected from further abuse and dealt with in a fair and humane manner. It is hoped that it will be reviewed by foster parents, youth in care, and those child welfare agencies/departments, foster family associations and law enforcement agencies that have procedures already in existence. It is also hoped that it will be used to develop appropriate procedures where needed.
The training package includes:
- Power Point Presentation
- Participants Handbook
- Facilitators Guide
Available for purchase for $100 CN
