About the Course
In the demanding realm of foster care, where the well-being of vulnerable children is at stake, the significance of effective time and stress management cannot be overstated. Given the multifaceted responsibilities of foster caregivers and staff, the impact of time and stress management reverberates through every facet of care. The welfare of our children hinges on the well-being and effectiveness of those entrusted with their care. When stress goes unmanaged, and time is not optimized, the consequences can be dire.
