Family Development and Case Management Summer Institutes for Head Start Programs

For information regarding the Management Institute for Head Start, please click this link. July 24-July 28, 2017 in San Francisco.

 

Basic Skills 1 and Basic Skills 2. June 18-22, 2018.  This Institute is for Family Workers and is based on the 8 Goals and the associated Relationship-Based Competencies from IM-12-05. Half of the goals/RBCs are covered in Basic 1, the other half in Basic 2 which will take place in 2018.

Location: TBA

As you know, the new Parent, Family Community Engagement (PFCE) framework requires HUGE changes for how Head Start family workers assist families. Our courses cover all of the Relationship Based Competencies in IM-12-05. The Office of Head Start eventually wants each local program to develop their in-house training capacity. Sending your staff to our courses is one way to develop the ability of your staff to provide that training. Whether your staff take the courses for college credit or not, they can (a) acquire the latest knowledge and skills needed to implement the PFCE framework, and (b) use our curriculum and materials for training other staff back home.

 
We provide these college courses for Head Start staff in conjunction with the California State University East Bay. To the best of our knowledge, we are the only West Coast provider of university-credit courses that are keyed exactly to the Relationship Based Competencies in the PFCE framework. These courses take place during the summer. The Summer Institute faculty are drawn from the Schools of Social Work and Social Welfare at U.C. Berkeley, CSU East Bay, San Francisco State, and other area universities and their MSW graduates, and from Head Start programs. These courses have also been conducted on-site for the City of Oakland, Riverside County Office of Education, Tulare County Office of Education, Merced County Office of Education, and others.  
Completion of four of the Basic Skills courses (12 credits) leads to issuance of the Certificate in Family Development from California State University. About 600 of our students have successfully transferred CSUEB college credits to dozens of different academic institutions.  No academic institution has refused to accept these credits from CSU.  

All Institute participants can get:

  • Four days of family development and case management training.
  • A terrific workbook with many useful materials.
  • 3 college credits to be used towards an A.A. or a B.A. ($267, for Basic Skills)
  • After Hours: A free guided tour of San Francisco for the first 49 registrants.
  • A reception hosted by the Center for Community Futures.

  • Information Packet: After we receive your registration, we will send you an information packet with: (a) what clothing to bring, (c) how to get from airports to the hotels, (d) driving directions, (e) the preliminary schedule, (g) parking instructions, (h) whether or not you are one of the first 49 registrants for that week who can go on the free bus trip to San Francisco,
  • Certificate of Completion: If you complete 75% of the classes, you will receive a Certificate of Completion from the Institute.

Those who do decide to go for the Family Development Worker Certificate can let us know by the end of the Institute.

     There is no “one way” to do family development. The Institutes provide a wide range of social work, family development and case management methods from which you can choose. Adapt their ideas to your local needs.
