The Power of Peer Support for Foster & Adoptive Families #327

Online, On-Demand Continuing Education Courses

Michigan State University School of Social Work seeks to be as accessible as possible. You can now receive social work continuing education credit at your leisure—when it's convenient for you! Save travel time and cost. The new licensure law states that, in Michigan, Social Workers may earn up to one-half of the required continuing education contact hours in person using live, synchronous contact. The remaining continuing education contact hours may be completed in any other approved format. If you live outside of Michigan, check with your state's social work regulatory body. For more information, please see the Licensing and Regulatory Affairs Director's Office Social Work General Rules. (R 338. 2963)

This course will give an overview of the benefits of agencies’ utilization of parent to parent or peer support programs for foster and adoptive parents. Participants will learn ways to incorporate various program models into their own agencies, as well as learn about existing parent-lead programs in Michigan and how they can benefit client families.
