Parent Partners

The Resource Center for Family-Focused Practice parent partner program provides a variety of trainings designed to train professional parent representatives in Wraparound programs, child welfare and child abuse prevention. Trainings are individually designed and tailored to meet the unique needs of each county and agency and for the mutual support and successful integration of past consumers. Trainings provide an underpinning for practice and skill development for parent partners to weigh in on programs, policies and families in more than a symbolic way—to become advocates and beyond for individual families. Parent partners learn to set a standard of understanding and to guide best practice.
