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.


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.
