More About the Training

This training is created specifically for the staff who work directly with CASA volunteers. This year we are excited to premiere a new, powerful and insightful interview featuring a father and a kinship caregiver who share their experiences with CPS and CASA.

We will also be highlighting new resources to add to your toolbox including:

  • Coaching Playbook,
  • Well-being Wheel,
  • Information on bias and values, and
  • Tips on how to use different lenses to gain a better understanding of children and families.

There will also be many opportunities for group discussions with your peers!

Plus, Andi March, legal consultant for Texas CASA, will be joining us to discuss how to leverage and respect CASA’s roles and responsibilities, best interest, normalcy, parental rights in the Texas Family Code, independent observations and more!
