CHILD FIRST AND INTERCEPT:
AN INTRODUCTION TO NEW PREVENTION SERVICE MODELS IMPLEMENTED BY THE LOUISIANA DEPARTMENT
OF CHILDREN AND FAMILY SERVICES
Virtual CLE/CEU - Presumptive Approval for 1 hour general credit
Thursday, July 21st | 12:00pm-1:00pm
About This Training:
The Louisiana Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) is approaching the passage of the Family First Prevention Services Act (FFPSA) as an opportunity to build a continuum of services that is responsive to the specific needs of children, youth, and families. One of the primary areas of focus for FFPSA is prevention services to keep children and teens safe and growing up in their homes whenever possible. As part of the continuum of services, DCFS will be referring families to two new prevention programs: Child First and Intercept.
Child First is an evidence-based, intensive, early childhood model that works with young children and their families who have experienced stress and trauma. The aims of this two-generation approach are to build strong, nurturing, caregiver-child relationships, promote adult capacity, and connect families with needed services to improve family stability and prevent future child abuse and neglect.
Youth Villages’ Intercept model is an evidence-based, integrated approach to in-home parent skill development that meets the individualized needs of a child and family. The model supports children aged 11-17 years old who have serious emotional and behavioral problems or who have experienced abuse and/or neglect. The program specializes in working with families whose children are at high risk of entry or re-entry into foster care.
Join us on July 21st to learn more about these innovative programs.
