Get in-service training credit for reading this newsletter!

Now you can enjoy reading Fostering Perspectives and get in-service credit that can apply toward your relicensure as a foster parent. First, read this issue, then write down the answers to the questions in this box. When you're done, present your answers to your social worker and receive 30 minutes of credit toward your in-service training requirement.

A word of caution, however. This method of gaining in-service credit, though it is approved by the Children's Services Section of the N.C. Division of Social Services, is new and may not be recognized by your county DSS. If your worker or her agency has questions about this idea, ask them to contact the Staff Development Team Leader at the Division at 919/733-7672.
