IN-SERVICE TRAINING FOR RESOURCE AND ADOPTIVE PARENTS AND KINSHIP CAREGIVERS

The Resource Parent Training Program, in conjunction with the Maryland Department of Human Resources (DHR) and the local Departments of Social Services, provides a variety of in-service trainings for resource and adoptive parents as well as kinship caregivers. These trainings are planned bi-annually and occur throughout the state, at the Child Welfare Academy in Baltimore, and regionally at the local Departments of Social Services. They are designed to equip participants with professional development education, resources, and tools to help with complex situations or issues related to caring for children, youth, and teens in foster care.
