    RAD Advocates will be sharing personal experiences that highlight what living with a child with Reactive Attachment Disorder looks like in the home. They will discuss what families can do to make a difference in the life of a child with Reactive Attachment Disorder. These experiences will be contrasted against some of the definitions and explanations that professionals tend to use when discussing children with attachment issues. Parenting any child who has a traumatic background is difficult. That difficulty is compounded when a child is unable to attach to a parent. Diagnosing R.A.D. can be difficult because children with attachment issues can exhibit a wide range of behaviors. Having an accurate diagnosis and receiving proper treatment is critical. If a child remains undiagnosed or receives ineffective treatment, their disorder can become increasingly worse. R.A.D. Advocates hopes to provide foster/adoptive parents with more knowledge on identifying R.A.D and finding support.

    project Foster Power (pFP) is a group of current and former foster youth, ages 15 to 25+, who are using their voices and experiences to improve the Colorado child welfare system through youth-led organizing and advocacy. Hearing time and time again that youth did not feel adequately prepared or supported in their transition to adulthood, pFP identified their 2020-2021 issue for action: Improving Supports for Young People Exiting Foster Care. As part of this campaign, youth came together to develop best practice recommendations for professionals across three key areas: 1) Placements that Better Meet Youth Needs, 2) Self Care and Community, and 3) Education and Employment. The first session of the series will focus on “Placements That Better Meet Youth Needs.” pFP developed these recommendations to help ensure that placements value youth voice, better meet youth needs, and better support youth during this critical time in their development. In this training, you’ll hear directly from pFP youth about how these tips were collectively created, why they are so important, and how you might incorporate them in your day-to-day work with young people.
