About the event
Join the Foster SQUAD and Children and Families of Iowa to hear retired Juvenile Judge Constance Cohen as she provides a safe space for an interactive conversation with foster parents in response to the participants’ questions. Foster SQUAD will set up a questions box with registration so participants will have time to consider what they want to ask in advance of the training. Topics may include, but are not limited to, how judges make decisions, court procedures, the overall role of the judge, ethical considerations, Safe Babies Court Teams, testifying tips, the trauma-informed approach, co-parenting, family contact considerations, and concurrent planning. The trainer will also introduce and discuss the 2-4-2 Book Program.
