On Friday, June 25, from 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM, Child Advocates of Fort Bend and Quality Parenting Initiative are partnering for a virtual event: Child Centered Attachment and Co-Parenting Training. This training will focus on a co-parenting model for caregivers and birth parents while children are involved in the child welfare system.

From the QPI website: “Children who enter the foster care system have had traumatic experiences far different from the experiences of ordinary childhood. They are removed from their parents, homes, and neighborhoods without understanding why or what happens next, losing meaningful connections to siblings and familiar adults. To undo this harm, we must organize the child welfare system around a simple principle: every child deserves excellent parenting every day.”

CEUs will be available!
