Relationships – Why They Matter (Training)

September 28 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

This training is offered virtually by Waypoints. For this training pre-registration is required by calling 728-3485 or emailing reneepiercey@waypointsnl.ca.

Often children in care are viewed as “relationship resistant.” Sometimes because of their life experiences they are reluctant to trust and take a chance on getting hurt by emotionally investing in a relationship with a caring adult. Building healthy relationships is the cornerstone of work with children in care. We will explore why it is vital that you have positive relationships with the children in your care as well as the importance of teaching the children how to build relationships in other social contexts. We will discuss the impact of past and present relationships on the child’s self esteem, the importance of permanent connections and the function of relationship during transition.
