Update September 2017
Children Services will be bringing Kevin Campbell the Family Finding trainer across the province in 2018, to provide a 4 day boot-camps again and mentoring to help build provincial capacity. We are currently discussing how to bring youth and lifelong networks to Alberta with Kevin. Kevin will also be facilitating 2 workshops at the ALIGN annual conference in January. Kevin will be providing 2 – 1 day workshops for Caregivers in Edmonton January 24th and Calgary January 23th. The Family Finding is an excellent approach to bringing Trauma Informed knowledge into practice, aligning with the Signs of Safety and building resiliency in children through building life long networks.
Kevin Campbell is an internationally known youth permanency expert, founder of the Center for Family Finding and Youth Connectedness and developer of the Family Finding model. This model is a set of strategies now utilized throughout the United States and Canada to establish lifelong supports for children and youth in care. The Family Finding approach is aligned with the CIPF principles, particularly those of Preserve Family and Connection. Family Finding is also formally connected with the Signs of Safety® practice approach.
