Caring for Children with Incarcerated Parents

Any child who comes into your care has undoubtedly faced hardship, but a child with an incarcerated parent carries an additional burden. If you find yourself caring for one of these children, you may face some difficult questions from the child and from others. Do you have to take the child to visit his or her parent in prison? What can you say to help the child deal with this tough situation? These questions and more will be answered over the course of this webinar. 3 hours in-service training.
