We thank you for your patience in advance, and look forward to this next step in the evolution of our online training program!

Foster and Adoptive Family Services (FAFS) has been a leader in providing in-service training hours for licensed New Jersey resource parents and relative care providers. Our mission is to provide support, training and advocacy to meet the special needs of foster, adoptive and kinship families, who provide safe, stable and nurturing homes for children in foster care.

The new Train Online courses offer easily accessible in-service training while eliminating the barriers of time and distance. The courses offered here will allow you to learn at your own pace, on your own time, and in your own home and you will receive the allotted amount of in-service training credit toward your licensure requirement for each course you successfully complete.

NEW:  “No hablo español, but the child in my care does:” Basic Spanish for Resource Parents

As a committed resource parent, you want to make your home available to any child who needs it.  Yet, what happens when a Spanish-speaking child is placed in your home, and you don’t know any Spanish? How will you communicate? This webinar is designed to teach you some basic Spanish for interacting with a child. Learn the sound system, so you can read from any storybook. Learn some simple verbs and nouns related to eating, dressing and going to school.  Learn some adjectives, so the child can tell you how he feels.  The focus is on speaking and listening. Therefore, be prepared to actively participate throughout the webinar. There can be no wallflowers in a language class! (2.5 hours in-service training)

NEW: Supporting Children Exposed to Domestic Violence

This course examines the causal factors of domestic violence, what sustains it, and how it impacts children who are victims of it directly, or who are victimized by witnessing it. The course looks at the necessary knowledge, skills, and competencies a resource parent must possess to recognize and help heal a child who has been such a victim. The course also includes an exploration of the phenomenon of dating violence, as this also impacts adolescent girls almost exclusively and is equally harmful. (3.0 hours in-service training)

 *Attendees must participate in and complete an entire webinar session to be eligible for the $50 drawing.

ATTENTION: The Division of Youth and Family Services (DYFS) has changed names. DYFS will now be called The Division of Child Protection and Permanency (CP&P).
ATTENTION:  In light of the fact that many Resource Families are active users of Facebook and other social networking websites, we want to remind everyone that confidentiality of children in placement and information regarding their families extends to this mode of communication. Any information regarding DCF children and families that is shared on Facebook, including photos or any other social networking site, is a breach of confidentiality.
