Kinship: Training & Consultation

Home/Kinship: Training & Consultation

Training and Consultation

Bringing the Traditions of Caring and Collaborating Kinship Family Information, Support, and Assessment Trauma Informed Model of Practice to your agency begins with a telephone consultation. The purpose is to discuss how the Model of Practice could build upon the strengths of your agency and meet your agency’s need to support kinship caregivers. For agencies that decide to implement the Traditions of Caring and Collaborating Model of Practice, CWLA offers two training and consultation options:

(1) Onsite training for all staff responsible for kinship care services

(2) Open enrollment training designed for agency staff from newly licensed agencies that are too small to make bringing CWLA staff onsite cost effective, newly hired staff from Traditions of Caring and Collaborating Model of Practice licensed agencies, and decision makers from agencies considering purchasing the Traditions of Caring and Collaborating Model of Practice license. All staff, supervisors, and managers who work in the kinship care program should participate.

Both “agency-based training and consultation” and “open enrollment training” are provided by CWLA’s senior staff and consultants/trainers who have expertise in kinship care programs, services, and curriculum development.

For information about consultation and training please contact Donna Petras, PhD, MSW, Vice President, Models of Practice and Training, dpetras@cwla.org.

Participants and trainers at the Kinship Care Traditions of Caring and Collaborating Model of Practice Training held in Phoenix, AZ in February 2019.
