Online Course Provides Parenting Strategies to Promote Reunification

An online course for family treatment court (FTC) teams from the Center for Children and Family Futures discusses how quality parenting time can support reunification efforts in FTC. The course features a short video outlining the core concepts, a video recording from a live discussion that took place in October 2021, and other materials and resources. The discussion video features subject matter experts and FTC members, and the resources include a team discussion tool to help FTC teams assess their strengths and challenges.

There are four learning objectives of the course: 

  • Understand the research linking quality parenting time to improved child well-being
  • Learn how to incorporate information about parenting time and parent-child relationships into FTC precourt discussions and conversations with families
  • Learn about implementing the approach from FTC members with experience
  • Use the Team Discussion Tool and the Take Action Tool to create a plan with your FTC team
The course, "Putting the Pieces Together: Harnessing the Power of Parenting Time to Strengthen the Parent-Child Relationship and Support Reunification Efforts in Your Family Treatment Court," is available on the Center for Children and Family Futures website.
