Working within OCFS begins with a video welcome by Director Therese Cahill Low. The OCFS mission statement is reviewed as well as other major DHHS offices and their role. The OCFS organizational charts and staff roles are reviewed stressing that OCFS is all one team working together for the children and families of Maine. Statistics of the populations served are reviewed as well as confidentiality, where to find policy and law, time management, professionalism, and the work environment. Hope Tormey will present her role in recruitment and retention of staff. The second half of the day is focused on self-awareness and self-care. The goal is to provide staff with strategies to ensure they have tools to allow them to know how they impact others they work with, their strengths/challenges. The end of the training offers tips to caring for themselves to avoid burn out and be retained as staff in OCFS.
