Sponsored by the Colorado Division of Child Welfare and the Be There for Your Kids Campaign
Paternal involvement is a key component of a child's development. Children with involved, loving fathers are more likely to do well in school, have healthy self esteem and avoid high risk behaviors than children with uninvolved fathers.
These interactive trainings will highlight the goals and value of engaging fathers in child welfare cases (PIP and CFSR), services available from fatherhood programs for caseworkers and dads, father engagement strategies and child welfare from the eyes of a Colorado dad. Child welfare caseworkers and their service providers are encouraged to attend, as the information presented will be geared toward them.
