Family Time: Supportive Virtual Family Time Program and Training (eLearning)

Supervised visitation staff and child welfare staff who want to develop skills to support virtual family time will benefit from this Online learning. In this training you are provided with structured support, guidance and training to:

  • Connect with the caseworker to prepare for remote supervised visits that will, to some extent, include both parent and foster/relative caregiver(s)         
  • Prepare the parent(s) for positive remote supervised visitation with their children         
  • Prepare the foster or relative caregiver(s) for how to support the child in their care in having positive remote supervised visitation with their parent(s)         
  • Hold a virtual Family Time Partnership meeting between the parent(s) and foster/relative caregiver(s) prior to supervised visits taking place to plan and prepare for virtual visits by getting to know one another, setting expectations and agreements and plan for and provide some structure for the remote visits         
  • Support the parent(s) and caregiver(s) in having positive and productive remote supervised visits and supervise the visits         
  • Create a plan to debrief one-on-one with the parent(s) and the caregiver(s) to celebrate success In addition, two videos developed by Fostering Connections for Families will be shared that model a family time partnership meeting as well and an example of what a virtual family time could look like.
