Relatively Speaking is offered to relative caregivers of children in care. The eligible relative caregiver is or will be taking care of, on a temporary or permanent basis, a child under the age of 18 who is related by blood, marriage, or adoption. The classes are designed to further the understanding of the relative caregiver role, enhance skills to strengthen and manage relationships, and provide information on the impact and effect on the child, birth parent, and the relative family. The training consists of three, one-week distance learning classes, “About You,” “About the Child,” and “About the Birth Parent.” Each training is three hours in length. These classes are completed using an e-workbook and instructor guidance.
