DCFS Caregiver Training Institute (Mar. 5)
Illinois caregivers will have a chance to earn five credit hours at a dynamic and interactive training session titled, "Turning Trauma Around at Home and in the Classroom." The session will take place Saturday, March 5, from 9:00am - 3:00pm at the DCFS Cook South Office, 6201 S. Emerald in Chicago.
Attendees will learn about local and statewide initiatives designed to help caregivers, and will be briefed on intervention techniques for children who have experienced trauma. They will also have a chance to meet with DCFS staff members as well as with youth who are currently receiving services.
Lunch will be provided, but there will be no on-site child care, and no reimbursement for child care or travel expenses. If you have questions, or would like to attend the training session, please call the DCFS Registration Line at (877) 800-3393.
