PS-MAPP

What is PS-MAPP Training?

Parenting for Safety and Permanency Model Approach to Partnerships in Parenting (PS-MAPP) training is offered after orientation to individuals and families interested in continuing through the foster care and adoption licensure process. PS-MAPP is a preparation and selection program for potential foster and adoptive parents. Prospective foster and adoptive individuals and families who are not able to attend the PS-MAPP group trainings can attend a PS MAPP Deciding Together Training. This training mirrors the group format but is offered on a 1:1 basis.

The goals and objectives of PS-MAPP are:
• Resource parents will be able to meet the developmental and well-being needs of children and youth coming into foster care, or being adopted through foster care;
• Resource parents will be able to meet the safety needs of children and youth coming into foster care, or being adopted through foster care;
• Resource parents will be able to share parenting with a child’s family;
• Resource parents will be able to support concurrent planning for permanency; and
• Resource parents will be able to meet their family’s needs in ways that assure a child’s safety and well-being.

These goals are supported through a mutual selection process, which emphasizes open communication, and trust between prospective foster care and adoption families, child welfare workers and WVCCC.

Upcoming dates:

We provide accelerated Saturday (5 week) classes or Tuesday (10 Week) classes.
