Icebreaker Meetings Toolkit
A toolkit from The Annie E. Casey Foundation aims to strengthen and build the relationships between caseworkers, foster parents, and birth parents. Icebreaker Meetings Toolkit: A Tool for Building Relationships Between Birth and Foster Parents gives agencies an overview of icebreaker meetings, describes the roles and responsibilities of attendees, and provides a self-assessment tool to help with implementation. Users will also find samples of various forms, handouts for the foster and birth parents, and tips for supporting youth during icebreaker meetings.
