Trauma-informed customer service: Building positive relationships and wellbeing for parents and caseworkers
Date: Monday, August 7 | Time: 3:45 p.m. | Location: TBD
What is trauma-informed customer service? We are all seeking ways to facilitate positive relationships and address mental health so that we can engage with our customers who are facing emotional and financial challenges that often come with the child support process. These feelings unchecked can intensify when prolonged. Taking a trauma-informed approach to customer service can make an important difference for both parents and child support workers. Applying emotional intelligence and empathy to interactions with parents, caseworkers, and support staff can help reduce conflict and mental anguish while building positive relationships that enhance overall wellbeing. During this interactive session, our panel of professionals will share insights and best practices for providing trauma-informed customer care in child support programs.

Childcare and parent services
Successfully run childcare programs promote emotional and intellectual development in children and enable parents to perform productively in the workplace. We develop, implement, and operate full-service childcare programs and information systems on behalf of our state partners.
Review and adjustment of support orders
Noncustodial parents are more likely to pay their support obligations in full and on time when the ordered amount is determined by their actual earnings and ability to pay.
Voluntary paternity acknowledgment
Voluntary acknowledgment of paternity is a critical first step in securing a support order and beginning collections.
Employment and training services for parents
We have over 30 years of experience operating innovative, highly effective employment and training programs that prepare parents for in-demand jobs and connect them with employers.

Improving early childhood programming into the future
COVID-19 exposed the fragility of an early childhood care system that didn’t have the financial resources to weather an unexpected pandemic. But it also made clear the value of those same providers.Discover how we helped childcare providers navigate the challenges and improve
