How are fathers treated in your agency? Child welfare and juvenile probation are required to work with parents of children to create a safe environment for their children. Often; the work is done with the mother; and the efforts to engage the father fade away or are simply less. Does your agency do that? Are the children and youth you work with getting the benefit of their fathers? Is there an unspoken bias to prioritize moms? Hear from dads who have been in the system and are now working hard to make sure agencies are attuned to the needs of fathers. Go dads!
The workshop, intended for child welfare, probation, education, and providers and staff who work with Transitional-Aged Youth (TAY), will provide information about the need for engaging TAY through Child and Family Teams (CFTs). The specificity and uniqueness of needs in this population will be presented, and participants will develop an awareness of integrated strategies and resources for authentic engagement in the lives of these youth within a CFT framework. The workshop will provide an opportunity for participants to ask questions and share strategies for effective partnerships between TAY and CFTs.
