4 CEUs: GH, STRTP ONLY
*** Approved for Laws & Regulations
The Foster Youth Bill of Rights was created due to the advocacy of youth in care, and its purpose is to protect children and youth in foster care, youth on probation and in out-of-home placement, and children living in any licensed or certified children’s facility or home in California.
Reasonable and Prudent Parent Standard (RPPS) was created to empower caregivers to make parenting decisions that support youth health, safety, and best interest while encouraging their positive developmental growth.
Participants will be empowered to make parenting decisions that uphold the rights and promote the positive development and well-being of youth in care. Participants will also know how to utilize the Office of the Foster Care Ombudsperson, as a resource to advocate for youth when a right has been violated.
