Online Course for Kinship Caregivers
Foster Parent College is offering a new online course specifically designed for kinship caregivers. The course discusses several common issues in kinship care situations, including family feuds, allegiance to birth parents, and distance and defiant behavior in the kinship family.
Foster Parent College also offers an array of other training courses for adoptive, kinship, and foster parents that focus on specific behavior problems or emotional disorders in children, and explore practical solutions to the daily challenges parents face. Three courses on Positive Parenting are also available.
Foster Parent College courses are available as self-directed courses or scheduled instructor-led courses. Parents can purchase courses on their own, or agencies can purchase through an agency account and offer the training to parents.
