Lifebook Training

Mending the Memories of  Past, Present, and Future

Tuesday

April 23, 2019

6:00 pm – 8:30 pm

This training introduces Life Books as a therapeutic tool for meeting the well-being needs of children in the foster care system. Life Books are widely recognized as best practice in child welfare services due to the benefits for the child, the birth parents, the foster/resource parents, the child’s therapist, and the child welfare workers. The creation and sharing of Life Books provide opportunities for discussing healthy connections, addressing traumatic events, and promoting a positive self-concept.
 
This hands-on course will also guide foster & adoptive parents in creating and maintaining the child’s Life Book. Examples of Life Book formats, materials used in Life Book preparation, organization tips, and innovative Life Book design methods will be addressed. In addition, participants will create a Life Book page and make plans for continuing the creation of Life Books for children in foster care and/or adoptive placements!

Please bring photos of your current placement(s) and/or birth children.

Bring life books examples to share with others if you have one.

Light Refreshments will be available.

Child care is not provided as the training topic may not be appropriate for children.
