Family Group Decision Making Webinars

American Humane is offering a series of webinars on Family Group Decision Making (FGDM), a process in which a trained coordinator brings together the family group and the agency personnel to create and implement a plan to safeguard children.

The nine webinars, which began in February, are offered on a monthly basis through November.  Each is led by FGDM experts who talk about "how-tos" and promising practices. Continuing Education Units are available.

The schedule for the remainder of the series includes a variety of FGDM topics:

  • Why Engage a Family in an FGDM Process? — March 23
  • Private Family Time: The Gift and the Challenge — April 27
  • Focus on Follow-Up — May 26
  • Staffing Your FGDM Program for Success: Recruitment, Retention, and Staff Development — July 27
  • FGDM: A Family-Led "Settlement Conference" for Dependency Courts — August 30
  • How Does FGDM Fit With First Nation and Native American Communities? — September 29
  • The Power of Voice: Family Group Conferencing and Family Violence — October 26
  • Engaging Youth in the FGDM Process: What to Consider — November 29
