Session 2/15

Page 1/4: From family to foster family: Making your home your workplace

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. It is a bit like preparing to give birth to a child – it starts a lot of reflections, hopes and doubts.


Aims of the session:
The main goal of this session is to map the family values that will be your professional competences in the task of becoming 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.
