Supervising for Success: Achieving Goals through Others
The quality of supervision is an important factor in an organization’s ability to achieve desired outcomes for children and families, retain staff, and support staff in achieving a maximum level of job performance and professional development. This interactive three-day training, Supervising for Success: Achieving Goals through Others, focuses on the essential functions of supervision that support relationship building, partnerships, and team-building in supervision. Leading, Planning, Organizing, Teaching, Supporting, and Evaluating functions are explored in detail through discussion of supporting literature, self-assessment tools, informative handouts, and group exercises and role play based on case and situational examples. The training is designed to enable new and experienced supervisors and middle managers to learn and enhance competence in implementing evidence-based skills to provide guidance appropriate for individual staff; promote engagement and commonality of approaches between levels of management to achieve organizational goals; enhance supervisor and middle manager skill in leading the development of collaborative partnerships in supervision; and create opportunity for supervisor-supervisee relationships that support coordinated and effective team functioning.

The Next Generation of Pre-Service Training and Mutual Assessment — Foster PRIDE/Adopt PRIDE Goes Online: A Partnership between CWLA and Foster Parent College
CWLA and Foster Parent College (FPC) have integrated the strengths of traditional groups, agency and family assessment meetings, and online training to meet the learning needs of diverse families and agency and family resources. This two-day training is designed for agencies that are using the PRIDE Model of Practice pre-service preparation and assessment program and wish to learn about this innovative, cost-effective strategy to prepare and assess prospective resource (foster and adoptive) parents as team members in child protection and trauma-informed care of children. The training features up-to-date strategies, techniques, vignettes, and examples drawn from and tested in the field. Anyone not familiar with the PRIDE Model of Practice who would like to learn about this next generation is also welcome.

Training Objectives:
• Provide the rationale for an innovative, cost-effective, online/in-person model for pre-service preparation (training) and assessment (home study) of prospective foster parents.
• Demonstrate the components of the model.
• Illustrate how this hybrid approach can meet learning and resource needs of diverse agencies and families.
• Provide a framework for agency implementation of the FosterPRIDE/AdoptPRIDE next generation as an innovative component of the PRIDE Model of Practice

Training Schedule:
Wednesday, April 29, 2015, 9:00 am – 5:00 pm
