Package IDDate

Here’s what we’ll examine during our time together:

Often, kids are confused and have lots of questions about why child protection is involved in their life or why they are in foster care. The Words & Pictures explanation process helps kids understand what happened to cause child protection’s involvement.  A critical part of the process is for the child protection agency to engage the parents in developing this shared explanation for the children.

This Learning Lab will help participants:

  • Work in partnership with families to create Words & Pictures Explanations
  • Learn new questioning skills and techniques that can help practitioners engage parents in developing the Words and Pictures Explanation
