Foster, Adoptive, Kinship, and Birth Parent Training 2022

Michigan State University School of Social Work

In an exciting venture with the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, the MSU School of Social Work is pleased to present opportunities for training specific to all caregivers engaged with the Michigan child welfare system. 

If you are a foster parent, adoptive parent, kinship/relative parent, or birth parent, these FREE trainings are customized to help support your needs in raising the children in your home, understanding some of the unique and sometimes challenging needs that children and their families often face in the child welfare system. 

Following licensure, caregivers are required to earn six hours of training annually. These trainings can count toward those hours.
