If your organization is interested in improving its practices and staff skills toward becoming a family-driven organization and engaging families, it is recommended that your organization send teams of leaders to the August 8 training, as well as participate in each of the three webinars. The webinars move from foundational to advanced family engagement strategies, and each of these events will feature faculty from different residential programs across the country who have extensive experience in moving their organizations to becoming family-driven and engaging families with complex challenges.
This special training program for Michigan residential treatment leaders and stakeholders will be held Wednesday, August 8, 2018, at the Crowne Plaza Lansing West. In addition, a series of three webinars will focus on successfully engaging families—from the basics to advanced. Webinar dates are Tuesday, July 10, Tuesday, August 14, and Wednesday, September 12, 2018.
The Michigan Federation for Children and Families is pleased to host these events for Michigan providers and stakeholders and is grateful for the generous support of the Building Bridges Initiative and the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services.
