Family Finding/Family Seeing
The Family Finding/Family Seeing Model organizes around a theory of change in Child Protection: Safety is temporary for children and families without healing. Parents, relatives and naturally occurring community and cultural supports join with Child Protection professionals to collaborate in the most important work we can do for maltreated children, find the safety and healing they will need to live a good life. This 4 hour session will provide an overview of some key paradigm shift concepts including Family Finding/Seeing practice, adversity and trauma, and NEAR science as applied to relational health.
