Training Staff to Provide Services to the Kinship Triad
This chapter focuses on the training needs of social workers involved in kinship care programs. Child welfare trainers have realized that the traditional foster care training is unable to meet the needs of kinship care practitioners and are seeking alternative curricula. The issues relating to a paradigm shift, the unique training needs of workers in kinship care, the important components of a training program, and child welfare workers' response to kinship care training are discussed.
