What better way to learn some aspects of helping youth to achieve permanency than by interacting with individuals that have been involved with child welfare? This workshop will consist of a panel of former youth in substitute care. Participants will have an opportunity to receive information on the child welfare system form the perspective of panelists, as they share their stories and experiences. A moderator will assist in guiding the discussion and participants will be given time to ask questions and dialogue with the presenters.
Participants will gather some insight from the panelists that may lead to self-assessment on how they have worked towards permanency with youth. The intent is that they will acquire some pointers that will be of much benefit in working with youth going forward.
