Training, Coaching, or Consulting: How to Choose the Correct Approach

In helping both foster parents and staff grow agencies can take a variety of approaches. The words training, coaching, and consultation are often used interchangeably, but actually are very different approaches. Each has a specific set of sub-skills and each is applicable to different situations. In this webinar we will learn the fundamentals of each, and learn how to differentiate when it is time to use which approach and how to ascertain the right time to move from one to the next.

Target Audience: Supervisors

FFTA members will receive an invitation to register for this webinar. 

Learning Objectives:
1. Participants will be able to differentiate between the skills needed to train, the skills needed to coach, and the skills needed to consult.
2. Participants will be able to assess the needed level of help of the client (whether foster parent or agency staff) and articulate why a particular method is correct for that person.
3. Participants will be able to assess the type of help appropriate to the situation, and articulate why a particular method is correct for that setting.
