Family Dynamics in Kinship Families: Implications for Services and Programs
This webinar is hosted by Grandfamilies & Kindship Support Network
Our webinar, led by world-renowned kinship expert Dr. Joseph Crumbley, will provide a framework describing the unique family dynamics of kinship families. Learn how to use this framework when engaging these families and developing kinship programs and services.
This webinar will help you:
• Understand how kinship care impacts and changes family roles, relationships, responsibilities, and interactions between family members and the triad (i.e., birth parent, birth child, and caregiver).
• Identify how family dynamics in kinship families are different from those in non-kin foster and adoptive families, and the implications of these differences.
• Formulate approaches to engage kinship families and develop services that utilize and support the dynamics of kinship families in providing children with safety and permanency and promoting their well-being.
