Two new online classes for kinship caregivers

Two new online classes for kinship caregivers

from the Alliance for Child Welfare Excellence:

Relative and kinship caregiving: navigating changing family dynamics

You made the choice to step in and provide care for a child when they needed it. This choice changed the day-to-day rhythms of your life and the life of the child or children you are caring for. As a grandparent or relative caregiver, this choice also changed your relationship with the child(ren)’s parents and sometimes with other adults in your family. In this course, we will explore how family relationships between adults have change and how you feel about these changes. We will learn and practice solution-focused communication skills that might help in navigating relationships with the parents of the child(ren) you are caring for. Lastly, we will review resources and sources of support to help lighten your load.

Relative and kinship caregiving: Supporting the child in your care

You made the choice to step in and provide care for a child when they needed it. This choice changed the day-to-day rhythms of your life, and the life of the child or children you are caring for. The changes that come with assuming full time care of a child bring with them a host of feelings and often added stressors. In this course, we will explore how this experience is impacting you and how to cope and care for yourself through the inevitable ups and downs. Then, we will shift our focus to understanding the feelings and behaviors the children are experiencing. It is common for them to have conflicting feelings about their parents, the situation and even you. We will consider how to accept their feelings, respond to their statements and questions, and support them as they navigate this. Lastly, we will review resources and sources of support, particularly support for children of all ages who are challenged by this transition and need support to not just survive but to thrive.
