Full course description

This engaging professional learning course focuses on risk factors impacting a kinship caregiver’s ability to provide safety, permanency, and well-being to children in their care. The risk factors being addressed are guilt, loyalty, denial, projection/transference, and ambivalence.

Course participants will learn to:

  • Recognize emotional risk factors, their causes and how they impact a caregivers ability to provide well-being, permanency, and safety
  • Develop goals and strategies for preventing and mitigating emotional risk factors experienced by caregivers
  • Construct and implement interventions that will assist caregivers in managing these risk factors
  • Differentiating the differences in risk factors between kinship care and non-relative adoption and foster care

Each of the five risk factors will be presented in separate modules, containing a video lecture, additional learning materials and short assessments at the end of each unit.
