Strengthening Child Protection Systems through Parent Leadership (Pre-Conference Seminar H)
Strengthening Child Protection Systems through Parent Leadership
(Pre-Conference Seminar H)
Introducing a groundbreaking Parent Leadership Training Model, this seminar presents proven strategies for recruiting, training, and supporting parents in leadership roles within the child protection system. Presenters showcase the success of the project in one county child protection department, highlighting the process of establishing a Parent Leadership Task Force composed of parents, administrators, and frontline social workers; strategies to support parents as effective change agents within the child protection system; and various ways child protection staff partner successfully with parents. Initial project evaluation findings demonstrate that parents gain new leadership skills and actively participate in a wide range of leadership roles when involved in the child protection system.
