New Generation PRIDE Model of Practice


Tuesday, May 18 – Friday,  May 21, 2021

9:00 AM – 1:00 PM EASTERN TIME Daily


​CWLA invites New Generation PRIDE Model of Practice-licensed agencies to participate in a training program that prepares participants to implement the New Generation PRIDE Model of Practice. This model addresses the challenge of finding and keeping competent and committed resource parents.  We will demonstrate how to integrate the competencies resource parents must have with the PRIDE preparation and assessment/approval process.  This approach helps ensure continuity between what prospective resource parents are recruited, prepared, and approved to do and expectations after children join their families. Participants who complete this course will be prepared to facilitate the FosterPRIDE/AdoptPRIDE preservice preparation and assessment program with prospective foster and adoptive parents, and to use the tools included in the PRIDE Model of Practice in the ongoing teamwork with foster and adoptive parents.


Who are the participants? Participants should be newly hired staff from PRIDE-licensed agencies who work in the foster care and adoption programs or staff who would like a refresher in the PRIDE Model of Practice. Registration will close when capacity is reached at 15.
