                OHIO CHILD WELFARE TRAINING PROGRAM

                             MISSION STATEMENT


The Ohio Child Welfare Training Program promotes the delivery of high quality,

culturally responsive, family-centered services to children and their families who

have experienced or are at risk of abuse, neglect, or dependency. We provide

competency-based training primarily to the public agency professionals,

caregivers, and adoptive parents who serve them. We collaborate with other

service providers to promote the delivery of competency-based training. We

advocate for public policy and practice standards that reflect best child welfare

practice.

                  NORTHEAST OHIO REGIONAL TRAINING CENTER
                             MISSION STATEMENT

The Northeast Ohio Region believes in the ongoing process of professional development of public child
welfare workers. The training center responds to the collective commonality of training needs of agencies
within the region. The Center values the input of agency liaisons that serve as a communication link with the
agencies and aid in planning and evaluation. To facilitate responsiveness to member agencies, the
Northeast Ohio Regional Training Center must (1) provide relevant training interventions which promote
application of practical learning on the job, and (2) utilize multi-indicators of assessment and evaluation.
The Northeast Ohio Regional Training Center strives toward being future focused in its program
development efforts regarding trainee and trainer development and the evaluation of the program.

         NORTHEAST OHIO REGIONAL TRAINING CENTER POLICIES

1. Workshop Credit

No credit will be given for workshop attendance if you arrive more than 15 minutes late (for reasons other
than inclement weather) at the onset of training, after breaks, and/or after lunch, or you leave early (for any
reason including agency, personal, or client business). NEOTRC adheres to the 15-MINUTE RULE – if
you miss more than 15 minutes of training, you will not receive credit. The 15-MINUTE RULE applies to
one-day training as well as multi-day training.

2. Attendance Certificates

Attendance certificates are distributed at the end of each training session. A survey evaluation form must be
completed in order to receive a certificate. Caregivers are strongly encouraged to keep their certificates to
verify training hours. No duplicate certificates will be provided.

3. Cellular Phones, Pagers and Text messaging

The use of cellular phones, pagers and text messaging is prohibited while training is in session. We expect
you to put cell phones and pagers on vibrate, and return calls only during break time. Cell phones are not to
be used in the training room, but rather in the break area or outdoors.

4. Workshop Cancellation in Case of Bad Weather

In the event of inclement weather, please check with your county's foster parent liaison to confirm that
training will be held.


Remember: Following these simple rules will help ensure that all participants will have an
educational, relaxing and enjoyable experience.

                                     Thank you for your co-operation

                                    Tips for Learners

A primary objective of training is to provide continued professional growth and development. These
“Tips for Learners” are suggestions to enhance your learning experience. Participation, motivation and
a positive attitude are important ingredients in learning.

•   You should assume responsibility for your learning experience and not depend solely upon the
    trainer.

•   Review objectives given in the registration announcement.

•   Plan to participate. Be an active member of the learning group.

•   Come prepared to take notes.

•   Come early for coffee and registration. Return from breaks and lunch promptly. Late arrivals are
    disruptive.

•   Talking and eating during the presentation is disruptive to the group.

•   Be selective in your workshop choices.

•   Complete all portions of the evaluation form. Your comments and suggestions are beneficial to
    future planning and development. Suggestions are helpful.

•   Remember, you are one of the learners in a 14-county training region. Be sensitive to the learning
    needs of others.

•   Use your local library or agency resource for follow-up materials.

                        FOR FOSTER/ADOPTIVE/KINSHIP PARENTS

901 Orientation to Foster Care, Adoption and Kinship Care
     This workshop provides an overview of the child welfare system and examines the differences
     between foster care, adoption and kinship care. Participants receive information about the
     needs of waiting children as well as the process of becoming a caregiver.

902 The Child Protection Team
     This workshop discusses the history of foster care and adoption and examines the role of the
     foster/adoptive/kinship caregiver within that system. Information is shared about the effective
     use of teams to serve children.

903 The Effects of Child Abuse or Neglect on Child Development
     This workshop examines the dynamics of child maltreatment. The trainer also seeks to
     develop empathy for the birth parent or caregiver who has abused or neglected a child.
     Participants view a video about an abusive birth parent and they explore factors that increase
     the likelihood of child maltreatment. This workshop gives participants an overview of normal
     child development and examines the impact of abuse and neglect on child development.

 904 Attachment, Separation and Placement
      This workshop demonstrates normal, healthy attachment and the impact on attachment of
      separation from primary parents, siblings and other attachment figures. Participants also
      learn methods to reduce the trauma to children who have experienced separation from
      significant others.

 905 Managing Behavior
     This workshop examines the reasons for behavioral problems among foster and adoptive
     children. The workshop also explains the agency policy regarding corporal punishment and
     the underlying reasons for that policy. Finally, participants receive information on positive
     ways to manage behavior, including natural and logical consequences, contracting and
     rewards.

 906 Preventing and De-escalating Crisis
     This workshop explores the triggers that might generate feelings of anger or fear in the
     caregiver or the child, resulting in family conflict. Techniques to resolve conflict thorough
     win/win, rather than win/lose, negotiation, will be presented and practiced. Participants will
     learn strategies to prevent crisis from developing and will learn methods to de-escalate crisis,
     if necessary, while keeping all family members safe.

 907 Cultural Issues in Placement
    This workshop presents an overview of culture and the ways in which our values and codes of
    conduct are impacted by culture. Participants learn to separate culture from race and learn to
    identify the many and complex ingredients of cultural identity. Caregivers will also learn
    methods to more successfully parent a child from a culture different than their own.

FOR FOSTER/ADOPTIVE/KINSHIP PARENTS
(continued)

908 Understanding Primary Families
    This workshop provides information about the losses experienced by birth families, expected
    behaviors of grieving birth parents, and ways to work effectively with birth families along a
    continuum of contact. A birth parent speaks to the training group about his/her experiences
    with foster care.

909 Children Who Have Been Sexually Abused
    This workshop examines the definition and dynamics of sexual abuse of children. The
    workshop also prepares prospective parents to develop an awareness of the characteristics of
    caregivers that lead to success in parenting children who have been sexually abused.

910 The Effects of Caregiving on the Caregiving Family
    This workshop examines the impact of foster care/adoption/kinship care on the family system.
    The workshop also enables prospective parents to develop effective coping strategies and
    survival plans.

911 Permanency for Children
    This workshop examines the effect of long term separation from the birth family (either by
    adoption or long term foster care) on children. The workshop will explain some “triggers”
    that may exacerbate difficulties of children experiencing these long term separations.

912 Permanency for Families
    This workshop examines the impact of adoption issues for adoptive parents on the family system.
    The workshop also explores techniques of talking with the child(ren) about their adoptive
    status and difficult birth histories. The workshop will present the typical stages of adoptive
    family adjustment following placement. Finally, information about post adoption services is
    shared with prospective parents.
