What are the benefits of the Model Approach to Partnerships in Parenting (MAPP)?

A:

The training helps you consider:

Is fostering/adopting for me?

Am I able to attach and bond to a child or children not born to me?

Am I able to learn to parent a child who has been neglected and/or abused?

What type of child can I successfully parent?

Am I willing to co-parent with the child’s biological parent/family member?

MAPP allows participates to interact with other individuals while affording the opportunity to gain insight into the needs of children who experience the child welfare system and how the child and their birth family are impacted.
