From family to foster family: Making your home your workplace


Competences to be exercised:

  • Mapping the positive values in the foster family.
  • Creating awareness of how these values are the tools to develop professional care.
  • Preparing the family members for their new roles.

Theme of the session: In this training session you are going to work with the process of becoming a professional place of care and finding the professional competences of your family life.

Aims of the session: The main goal of this session is to map the family values that will be part of your professional toolbox to become a foster family.

Please use 15 minutes (or as much time as needed) for summing up what you worked with between the last session and this one:

•  Did you succeed in doing what you planned?
•  
What was easy to do and what was difficult?
•  
What did you learn from doing what you planned?
•  
What can you do better next time you work between sessions?

Please remember: It is okay if you experienced problems – this is a new way of working, and it takes some exercise and experimenting before it becomes routine.
