Summer Institutes

Family Development and Case Management “Summer Institutes” for Head Start Programs will take place on Zoom.

We are doing a Summer Institute “Review and Renew” special class based on the PFCE Framework in July on Zoom. (There are no in-person classes on the California State University campus this summer.)

The classes will be LIVE and highly interactive for sharing experiences, asking questions, and group learning. The HHS/OHS has described what Family Workers need to know and do in the form of ten goals and associated Relationship Based Competencies (RBCs). Our classes are based completely on the RBCs. The faculty are from the Schools of Social Work and Social Welfare at CSU Stanislaus, U.C. Berkeley, Cal State University East Bay, San Francisco State -- and their MSW graduates and from Head Start programs. You do not have to be enrolled in the Family Development Certificate Program or sign up for college credit to attend. You can just take the class. All virtual classes start at 8:30 am Pacific Time, and are 3 hours with breaks.

The schedule:

July 20. PFCE Goals 1 and 2

July 22. PFCE Goals 3, 4, and 5.

July 27. PFCE goals 6, 8, and 9.

July 29. PFCE Goals 7 and 10.

All participants get:

  • Training in family development and case management based on the latest in social work theory and practice.

  • Copies of the PowerPoints and other handouts.

  • A certificate of completion related to the Head Start training requirements for family workers.
