We know that you can’t always make it to training on the date or at the time one is scheduled. And we also know that, even when you do attend training or a class, sometimes a refresher is welcomed and needed. Below you will find a list of previously offered trainings from the Foster Care and Adoption Resource Center and the Coalition for Children, Youth & Families. While the recordings below are free to view as often as you would like, please note that the FCARC and the Coalition can only issue Continuing Education Hours for participants who attended the original “live” webinar training. We have however developed an Information Summary and Application tool that can be used in conjunction with the recorded training. The issuance of training hours for the use of the tool is at the discretion of your agency. We encourage you to contact your licensing worker with any questions about if/how viewing the recordings below may be applied to your training hour requirements.

Tips for Teachers: Assignments that Can Be Triggers

For children and youth who were adopted, are in foster care, or are living with a relative who is not their biological parent, certain school assignments can trigger feelings of sadness or loss. The Coalition for Children, Youth & Families created this short video that will offer suggestions for alternative assignments that are inclusive for all students. We encourage you to view this video and share it with other parents and colleagues. If you have questions, please contact us; we are here to help.
