Family Team Conferencing Integrated Virtual Training

About Family Team Conferencing Integrated Virtual Training

This Family Team Conferencing (FTC) Integrated training has been designed to inform and orient facilitators to the changes in FTC practice as embodied in the new CWP Integrated Family Team Conference Model that will be used throughout ACS, foster care and prevention agencies. Learners will be able to understand the goals of this model, which conferences will now be facilitated by ACS, and how this model can result in a more integrated continuum of conferences. There will be multiple interactive scenarios and activities used to reinforce core FTC components such as the 6 Stage Structure, safety and risk decision-making, family engagement and management review.
