The It's All Relative: Supporting Kinship Care Video Series
The It's All Relative: Supporting Kinship Care Video Series illustrates the complex dynamics of family relationships and caregiver support needs through real-life stories of kinship caregivers. The powerful stories demonstrate the important role that kinship caregivers play in the lives of children across the country and how strengthening these diverse families can help achieve positive outcomes for children.
The discussion guides include flexible menus of reflective activities and questions for individual coaching or to promote collaborative discussions. Templates for setting goals and planning action provide a pathway to move learning into practice. The discussion guides, designed to be used with the videos in this series, are tailored to support different audiences. We are pleased to offer social work, clinical psychology, counseling, and marriage and family therapy continuing education units (CEUs) with this learning experience. The CEU sponsor, R. Cassidy Seminars, maintains responsibility for its CEU program. For more information on the licensing program and requirements, please visit their website
