Through interactive exercises and panel presentations, participants will examine barriers and supports encountered by caregivers seeking legal guardianship, and develop strategies to improve supports in their own counties. Panelists will present models for assisting caregivers seeking guardianship (court-based self-help programs, volunteer attorney programs, legal services offices, etc.), demonstrate how to navigate the AOC website to find materials and resources that can be adapted for local use, and provide a ‘toolkit’ of links and resources. The workshop will include a discussion of ‘kinship diversion’ practices (referral of caregivers to probate guardianship by child welfare agencies).
