What to Ask When Called About a Placement will help foster and adoptive parents gather information before accepting a placement of a new child. During the training, participants will discuss questions to ask when receiving a call from a caseworker to help determine if the placement is a good fit for their family. Asking appropriate questions and being prepared may help prevent a future removal or a foster parent feeling overwhelmed by taking a placement that they are not equipped to parent.
After completing this training, participants will be able to:
Ask constructive questions in order to prepare for a new placement and identify if it will be an appropriate fit for their level of parenting skills.
Discuss how asking questions and assessing the information given may be able to prevent future removals.
