Professional development and ongoing training are critical to developing a skilled child-welfare workforce as well as achieving safety, permanency, and well-being for children and families. Training also improves the consistency of services and increases engagement with families.
FIN supports providers with specialized fidelity training. Our goal is to have providers within the FIN network meet or exceed all service delivery training requirements as measured by service industry standards and model fidelity.
We offer a wide range of training topics, including trauma-informed care; diversity, equity, inclusion; cultural humility and responsiveness; service delivery; safety; technology; and self-care. In-person, virtual, and self-paced trainings are all available options. Some trainings are offered in multiple languages. Most trainings are free or low cost, and financial assistance is available.
