Fostering & Adopting At-Risk Children

August 13, 2022 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm CDT

Fostering & Adopting At-Risk Children explores categories of at-risk behaviors among children and adolescents that may lead to negative consequences, like poor health, injury or death. It assists foster/adoptive parents with identifying as-risk behaviors and offers strategies to help address them.

After completing this training, participants will be able to:

  • Identify types of “at-risk” behaviors in youth.
  • Discuss strategies to problem solve “at–risk” behaviors to stabilize a child’s placement.

ASK-VIP trainings are expressly designed to meet the needs of foster and adoptive parents. Skilled trainers who have lived experiences with fostering and adoption provide these trainings in a virtual group setting. There is 1.5 hours of ongoing, elective foster parent training credit available for Kentucky’s foster parents.

Create an account or log-in to register for this training. A reliable internet connection and a smartphone, tablet, or computer with web camera is needed to participate. If there are two adults in the same household that want to participate in this training, each person must register separately. Foster parent training credit is administered based on the duration of the meeting and each attendee’s participation. Training credit is only available if you have not participated in this training within the past twelve months.


If you have any questions about this training or how to register, please email ask@uky.edu or call 859-257-7361.
