Utah Foster Care (UFC) is dedicated to educating foster parents and the larger community about the difficulties faced by many children in foster care — and how the community (generally) and foster parents (specifically) can help these children heal from the traumas they’ve experienced.
Our annual Symposium on Trauma and Attachment brings local and national experts to present and is open to foster parents and the public. In addition to being a wonderfully educational and deeply social event, the Symposium is one way for attendees to meet their personal educational goals. For foster parents, the time spent at the conference counts towards their in-service training requirements for re-licensing. For child welfare and clinical professionals, there are often continuing education credits (CEUs) available (the amount varies each year).
