    This online course was developed as an overview course for current foster and adoptive parents and child welfare practitioners as way to review some of the information given in the TIPS MAPP pre-service program.

    The child welfare landscape has changed considerably since MAPP was first developed in 1986. As a group, children in foster care are older and their behavioral problems more challenging. MAPP has undergone several changes to ensure that all MAPP-licensed states and agencies are able to meet the needs of a changing child and family service population, The current version, TIPS MAPP is a Trauma Informed Care practice model that considers and responds to the needs of children and families who have been maltreated and traumatized.

No matter what your role is in child welfare (foster parent, worker, supervisor, therapist, counselor, administrator, etc) how you interact with others can have lifelong impacts and it us up to each of us to decide whether those impacts will be positive or negative.
