Training Description

Significant stress and confusion occurs for children and youth when they experience separation from their parents or primary caregiver(s). When inadequately addressed, this stress can lead to trauma. Learn how QPI sites are implementing early connection and communication (Comfort Calls) between parent and foster parents to improve the child’s transition, meet children’s needs and develop shared understanding around their unique needs.
