LAMM offers complimentary one-one-one coaching opportunities to all those who have completed residential training. Our highly qualified trainers have extensive first-hand experience in child welfare and can talk with you about your change initiative, barriers to implementation and any relevant topics you would like to raise. Sessions are normally over the phone for about an hour.
Note: LAMM coaching is completed for this project period. For updated information, please check back. During this time, we will still continue to offer other resources to LAMM alumni.
