Bearpaw Legal Education Family Law Sessions
The A-B-Cs of the Child, Youth & Family Enhancement Act (9:30 am to 11:30 am)
This workshop helps participants navigate their way through Children’s Services and explores the legal rights, programs, and resources available to families. The target audience is frontline family support workers and families who are involved with or risk becoming involved with Children’s Services.
Family Group Conferencing (12:30 – 1:30 pm)
The FGCs are circle processes for families, courtworkers and other community support groups as well as Alberta Children and Youth Services. The FGCs can happen after a child is apprehended and before they are placed in a foster or kinship care situation. The idea is that all parties involved, including the child, have a say in the plan for that child. It is based on a traditional approach to healing.
Parenting – Legal Rights and Responsibilities (1:30 pm to 3:30 pm)
