Resource Parent Training on Confidentiality

Confidentiality of foster children, their families, & our licensed foster parents is essential in protecting the privacy of individuals associated with our child welfare system. As a foster parent you are being entrusted with someone else’s private information & must keep such information private. Today’s society is quick to engage on Facebook, Snap Chat, Twitter, & more. These natural social media outlets are not always appropriate when you have a foster child in placement. A foster child’s privacy is paramount! This presentation will provide listeners an overview of state law, rule & policy specific to maintaining the confidentiality of foster children.
