Community Training: The Importance of Sibling Bonds Training
September 16 @ 9:00 am - September 23 @ 12:30 pmFree
Join the Foster and Adoptive Care Coalition for this virtual training about the importance of sibling bonds. Sibling relationships are emotionally powerful and critically important not only in childhood, but over the course of a lifetime. The sibling relationship is one of the longest relationships anyone will have, preparing individuals for peer relationships, teaching social skills, conflict resolution, and navigating relationship issues. They provide a sense of connection, continuity, and belonging. Children who enter foster care are often separated from siblings for a variety of reasons, but ongoing efforts should be made by the child’s team to ensure that placement together can happen. This training will provide information about the importance of the sibling bond in our personal lives and the lives of others, myths and facts about the separation of siblings, the benefits of placing children together, and the importance of preserving the connections that children in care have with their siblings.
COURSE TIME: 7 hours training credit. Saturdays, September 16 & September 23. 9am-12:30pm
