The type and the frequency of contact with a child's biological parents is one of the many difficult decisions child welfare workers make. No matter the level of contact, issues related to the birth family must be addressed and resolved by the agency, caregivers, and the child. Participants in this training will learn to understand the issues children face when they are separated from their birth family, gain tools to help facilitate birth family relationships and understand the challenges and benefits of birth family contact.
