Family Team Decision-Making (FTDM) and Youth Transition Decision-Making (YTDM) Fundamentals

DESCRIPTION:  This training targets all contract providers who attend FTDM/YTDM Meetings. The training will provide  information on the history of FTDM/YTDM Meetings and the statewide standards required to be met at each meeting. Participants will also be trained on identifying functional strengths for clients, assisting clients and teams in identifying underlying needs for clients, and understanding the safety constructs we work with, with in the Child Welfare System.

NOTE: This training curriculum has been specifically written for contract providers who participate in FTDM/YTDM Meetings, NOT those who would like to become facilitators, and will discuss how team participants can work with clients and facilitators to ensure clients have a voice in the own case planning.

Trainer: Jesse Thomas
