Family Engagement

  1. Family Engagement

What is Family Engagement? 

Family Engagement Training includes instruction and tools designed to enhance the capacity of individuals who work with children and youth and their families to effectively engage those families. Training focuses on developing the knowledge and skills of workers in juvenile justice, protective services, and early childhood settings as well as community partners, youth, advocates, and families themselves. The overall purpose is to expand family engagement in all aspects of service planning and delivery for children and young people engaged in CYFD services. The goal is to increase the number of workers, providers, and advocates who can effectively engage families. The training is focused on participants learning why engaging families is important; understanding the five core values of genuineness, respect, empathy, active listening and trust; learning basic skills to effectively engage families including three applied techniques; recognizing challenges and barriers to family engagement; and using strengths-based techniques and language.
