How Loss Impacts Youth in Foster Care: What is our role within these relationships?

Oftentimes in foster care, foster youth may encounter unexplained loss of someone or something immeasurably important that forces unwelcome change(s) in their lives, ultimately leaving children/youth in a lifelong state of grieving.  In this training, characteristics of this ambiguous loss will be explained with clear examples by showing how this loss can have a deeper impact on foster care transitions and lived experience.  In addition, this training will provide you with important and innovative information about the communication skills needed to engage in open, positive communication to ensure your youth feel heard and supported.

Participants: Resource Parents and Child-and-Family-Serving Workers
