Providing quality care for children in the spirit of Christian love

Foster Parent Training Curriculum

The training, evaluation, and consultation Adriel foster parents receive through our foster parent training curriculum enable them to go above and beyond other foster care treatment providers.

Adriel provides this foster parent training curriculum to families licensed by Adriel and also those licensed by other foster care agencies.

Our foster parent training curriculum helps foster parents understand the children they are parenting. Many of the children have an undeveloped sense of "family" resulting from their backgrounds of abuse and neglect.

Model, Topics, and Classes in the Foster Parent Training Curriculum

Adriel, through the Teaching-Family Model, also provides practical and specific ways to help teach our children new coping skills. According to the Teaching-Family website,

“THERE IS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN QUALITY AND QUALIFIED. QUALITY PROGRAMS REQUIRE THE IMPLEMENTATION OF EVIDENCE-BASED, RESEARCHED PRACTICES SUPPORTED BY OPERATIONALIZED STANDARDS. THIS IS THE TEACHING FAMILY MODEL”

Here are some details about our foster parent training curriculum:

Pre-adoptive Infant Foster Home Training Requirements and Topics

Per the Ohio Laws & Administrative Rules, those seeking certification to operate a pre-adoptive infant foster home must complete a minimum of twelve hours of pre-placement training prior to the agency recommending the home for certification and a minimum of twenty-four hours of continuing training during each certification period. Topics include legal rights, policies, procedures, infant care, early childhood development, cultural issues, first aid and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), medication administration, and procedures for reporting suspected child abuse or neglect.

Family or Specialized Foster Home Training Requirements and Topics

People seeking certification to operate a family foster home shall complete a minimum of twenty-four hours of pre-placement training prior to the agency recommending the home for certification and a minimum of thirty hours of continuing training during each certification period. For those seeking certification to operate a specialized foster home, the required number of continuing training increases to forty-five during each certification period. Foster parent training topics include those listed above plus various aspects of childhood trauma, behavior management techniques, cultural issues, communicable disease, community health, social services, the appropriate knowledge/skills to understand and support older youth preparing for independent living, and more.
