Course Description

As child advocates, we all know about the court hearings, multi-disciplinary team meetings, suitability assessments, and review hearings that make up the residential treatment center (RTC) framework for our dependent children, but how many of us know what day-to-day life looks like for our kids residing in RTCs? 
RTC operation standards are voluminous and detailed, but how are they put into play? 
Join us for a training on education, socialization, skills training, nutrition, and day-to-day life for children in RTCs. 
Learn about RTC operations standards, how to provide input in your child’s treatment plan, and establish professional relationships with key RTC staff. The RTC silo is open for viewing! We will teach about RTC operations standards, and then play jeopardy.
Speakers: Bethanie Barber & Mildred Sellars
