NFPA’s 52nd Education Conference

Celebrate With Us | Embrace New Partners | Make New Connections!

Trainer: Mrs. Pamela Menendez


Co-parenting as synonymous when talking about parents divorcing or unmarried couples separating who need to continue to parent their children even when living in different homes.

In child welfare it’s different in many ways, but the rationale behind this practice is just as important if not more. So what are the differences?

Caregivers are often strangers.

No biological connection.

Separation is not a choice.

Findings of abuse, neglect, or abandonment

Trauma has occurred, experienced by both the child(ren) and
removal parent/caregiver.

New, unknown, scary environment for everyone.

This workshop will be fun and interactive. Attendees will leave with knowledge, skills, and confidence to begin co-parenting in child welfare.
