PLEASE NOTE: This first workshop is only for parents whose child’s current permanency goal is restoration. If you are not sure about this, ask your caseworker/case manager.
Future workshops will be offered where the permanency goal is not restoration.
WORKSHOP FOR PARENTS (pilot)
This is our first-ever workshop for parents and the first one with two parents co-facilitating. This workshop was developed by parents with lived experience of restoration who will tell parts of their stories during the workshop and connect them with workshop activities.
The workshop includes:
- staying focused on children’s interests and needs
- strengthening child-parent relationships
- how putting thought into family time may help work towards restoration
- the importance of parents being actively involved in planning and decision making about their child.
Workshop activities relate to real-life restoration events, including knowing what plans what might be in place and starting plans to discuss with caseworkers/case managers.
