Children in the child welfare system have questions about their past, present and future – ones that must be answered in order for them to move through their trauma and grief, get and stay on track socioemotionally, and be able to make sense of their lives. This training focuses on what those questions will likely be and ways to answer them in age and stage appropriate ways. Participants will be provided with resources to help anticipate children's questions, answers that work, and what to do when asked questions we don't have answers to. Finally, participants have an opportunity to practice both developing questions children might have in a particular situation and developing answers that work for them.
