For families involved with DHS Child Welfare, navigating the system can be a tremendously difficult experience, for all parties involved. Our goal with meeting facilitation is to create a forum where communication is enhanced between parents, caseworkers and foster parents. Our meeting facilitators are highly skilled in effective communication, conflict resolution and mediation, and demonstrate a deep understanding and implementation of trauma-informed interventions.
We provide coordination, planning and facilitation of meetings for parents involved with DHS Child Welfare to bring together all parties involved. Our meeting facilitators create a space to discuss family strengths, concerns of DHS, progress toward closure of DHS case, planning for increased involvement of service providers, natural and community supports, and written objectives for follow up.
Meeting Facilitation Services Available:
- Child Safety Meetings
- Family Decision Meetings

I have been pleased with Family SkillBuilders’ level of professionalism and cooperation while working with caseworkers and their ability to build relationships with clients, creating an environment where support, training and education is well received.
Your consultant was great in understanding the concerns and working with the parents to increase the protective ability that, in return, increases the children’s safety.
