Building Relationships with Families

(7 hours)

Purpose
Promoting positive outcomes for children is best achieved when the whole family is accepted and supported in an approach that strengthens the family.  Recognizing the parent-child bond as the first, most important relationship in a child’s life, it is important to have strong, positive relationships with the whole family. Having such relationships allows for programs to implement programs that value principles of family-centered practice.

This training promotes awareness of the importance of developing skills in building relationships with families through a variety of reflective and interactive activities.

Goals
• Build awareness around the importance of family-centered practice
• Build skills necessary to use a strength-based approach to working with families
• Reflect on strengths and challenges in building relationships
• Engage in self-reflective activities that elicit thought-provoking discussion
• Discuss personal biases and backgrounds, and recognize that each individual comes with their own sets of strengths and challenges
• Become more aware of what is means to be welcoming and inclusive of families
