PRIDE Model of Practice Training and Consultation
Bringing the PRIDE Model of Practice to your agency begins with a telephone consultation. The aim is to discuss how the model could build upon the strengths of your agency and meet your agency’s needs to develop and support resource families. For agencies that decide to implement the PRIDE Model of Practice, CWLA offers two training and consultation options:
(1) CWLA staff come to your agency and work onsite with your staff responsible for family foster care and adoption services.
(2) CWLA staff provide open enrollment training workshops around the country where agency staff responsible for family foster care and adoption services come to learn the PRIDE Model of Practice.
Both “agency-based training and consultation” and “open enrollment training” are provided by CWLA’s senior staff and consultants/trainers who have expertise in PRIDE Model of Practice curriculum development and on-site implementation.
For information about PRIDE consultation and training please contact: Donna D. Petras, PhD, MSW, Director, Models of Practice.
