One of the greatest struggles for professionals and families in the field is how to engage children and families surrounding the separation and losses in their lives, understand the trauma related to these losses, and how to integrate and restore relationships within the family system. During the past several years, the 3-5-7 Model® developed by Dr. Darla Henry has become an integral practice engagement strategy to support the work of young people and all of their families to build permanency relationships.
As a directional, guided approach, this practice model provides tools for professionals and caregiver parents to understand the stories of loss, trauma, and abandonment that each child carries with them from poor parenting experiences. We welcome Dr. Darla Henry, a true pioneer in the field of permanency and resilience within child welfare, as she guides us through 5.5 hours of content, videos, activities, and interactive discussions to explore the 3 tasks, 5 conceptual questions, and 7 interpersonal skills necessary to better support children and families as they heal and rebuild relationships. The 3-5-7 Model® takes the "guesswork" or the "we hope it works" approach out of permanency decision making.
