Welcome to Christian Family Care’s Foster and Adoptive Family Support Group
Christian Family Care’s support group exists to connect foster and adoptive parents through relevant training topics followed by a time to connect through conversation. The meeting time will consist of 45-60 minutes of training and the rest of the time will be used to connect with one another and walk alongside each other in your journey as foster and adoptive parents.
Training Description: Child Development and Effects of Maltreatment – Part 1
This two part training is designed to help parents and caregivers learn the various stages of childhood development in order to have a foundational understanding of optimal development to compare to the effects maltreatment has on the developing child. Oftentimes trauma and maltreatment impacts the optimal development of the child and it is important for parents and caregivers to know what is within the typical range of developmental appropriateness and what is a result of maltreatment.
This month families have the option of attending in person. See locations below. In person attendees still need to register below.
Childcare is available and spots are limited. Please select number of children on the ticket and names in checkout at least one week in advanced.
