Relative/Kinship Caregiving: Navigating Change and Supporting the Children in Your Care
You made the choice to step in and provide care for a child when they needed it. This choice changed your life, the life of the child or children you are caring for, and potentially many other family members. This course explores how to navigate changing relationships between adults as well as the feelings and behaviors of the children. You’ll spend time in class focusing on yourself, too, looking at how you can cope and care for yourself through the inevitable ups and downs. You will discuss strategies around solution-focused communication and learn about resources and sources of support that will help you and the children in your care thrive.
