Family Time: Relationships and Reassurance (eLearning)

Parent, child and sibling family time helps reduce further trauma from the separation by reassuring the child and maintaining the parent-child relationship or helping build the relationship. Social workers and caregivers are part of a team in making family time happen, making sure that the benefits are realized for the children and parents, and helping children through the separation from their families, friends, and homes. This short eLearning will cover the role of family time in child well-being and permanency, as well as the social worker’s role in providing parent-child and sibling family time.
