These trainings are delivered on–site (at agencies and local districts) and at CDHS regional offices.
Who Should Attend:
Agencies can invite foster parents who were not certified through GPSII/MAPP,
designated babysitters or back–up care providers of children in care,
caseworkers, supervisors, administrators, support staff, or anyone else who works or volunteers at the agency.
Mini-MAPP is a condensed overview of the 30–hour
It is designed to introduce participants to the philosophy, concepts, activities, terminology,
and tools used in GPSII/MAPP.
By offering Mini-MAPP to these participants,
becomes a guiding and unifying framework that everyone can use in their partnerships with families of children in care.
