A Learning Program for Strong Families Foster Care Professionals
The Child and Adolescent Needs and Strengths–New York (CANS-NY) is an information integration tool that is designed to communicate the results of a high-quality screening and assessment process. Its primary purpose is to communicate a single, shared vision of the strengths and needs of a child and family being served by multiple service systems (e.g. child welfare, health homes, schools, etc.).
This 4-hour, virtual, instructor-led session is an exciting opportunity for passionate, committed professionals to develop and strengthen their ability to identify a child and family’s strengths and needs, and base the service plan on those needs. Whether you are new to your role or a seasoned professional, this training will help deepen and sharpen your assessment skills.
Moreover, special attention will be paid to how to engage with families and communicate the importance of the CANS-NY in planning for the safety, well-being and permanency of our children in care.
