About the Event:


This training is geared toward tribal/first nations child welfare workers who want to improve on their basic skills. The training will strengthen the workers capacity to work with children and families by developing effective interviewing skills, assessment, service planning, case planning and service coordination. Participants will learn the essential elements for successfully working with substance-abusing families in child welfare. Following these core practice skills the participants will learn about writing effective court reports, and finally the basic values, principles, and standards for child and family centered and case records and documentation.


The training is made up of five 90-minute sessions on a range of child welfare skills. Choose between a daily (five-day) virtual training June 1–5 or a more compact two-day training on June 17–18. You won’t want to miss out on this opportunity to join Terry Cross, the nation’s leading expert in tribal child welfare, as he reviews best practices and shares his over 40 years of experience in the field. CEUs are currently pending. Note that the training will be hosted on Zoom. The instructor will implement instructional design created specifically for effective adult learning. Participants will experience large and small group learning, participate in facilitated discussion groups, and work through case-based exercises. This approach is made possible by new video conferencing capacity that allows breakout groups and live chat sessions. You will need a computer, internet access, speakers, and a microphone (or telephone) in order to access the training.
