Training Opportunities

During the quickly evolving COVID-19 situation, we are monitoring training plans day-by-day. We will be deciding on how to proceed with currently planned training events based on the official guidance of public organizations, size and scale of events, location, and the decisions of our hosting agencies. The health and well-being of our staff, trainers and participants is of utmost importance.

Participants should make their own decisions regarding traveling to and attending group events, in conjunction with their health care provider and employer. We understand that, given the situation, registered participants may decide to not attend events.

As soon as a decision is made to cancel or postpone an event that you are registered for, you will be notified by our staff.

Presented by Dr. Jessica Pryce

Building relationships with families who come into our system takes a level of self and cultural awareness, understanding and trust. Data shows that families of color are disproportionately represented in the foster care system, and experience poorer outcomes. This virtual training will provide some historical context associated with child welfare and the standards that our society upholds regarding parenting. It will include a discussion of types of racism and how they are at play in our global child welfare infrastructure. The training will focus on how child welfare professionals can collaborate with families to enhance their capacity to protect their own children, with a focus on family engagement as a key strategy.Participants will be invited to envision a new system and to articulate their own role in addressing racial equity.
