Working with Birth Parents Webinar

There’s little doubt that good relationships between birth parents and foster parents benefit children in out-of-home care. Where there is positive co-parenting, there are better outcomes for children. But how do you go about building that relationship?

This webinar will identify common barriers to good relationships, as well provide tools and strategies for overcoming those barriers. Topics covered will include:

  • Misconceptions about birth parents
  • Navigating cultural differences
  • Shared parenting meetings
  • Setting healthy boundaries
  • Maintaining sibling connections
