Consult this video series and companion discussion guide to get different perspectives on building trust and supporting family well-being.
In a mosaic, where individual pieces come together to form a vivid picture, looking at only one piece by itself doesn’t show you all there is to see. In the same way, different perspectives within a family come together to tell a more complete story of what is needed to support family well-being. Each set of videos in this series is a mosaic that illustrates the efforts required to build trusting, collaborative relationships between resource parents, kinship caregivers, families, child welfare agency staff, and service providers. Use the activities in this guide with the mosaics to spark conversations and critical thinking among agency staff, resource parents, kinship caregivers, service providers, and community groups.
