The Child Welfare System of the Future - Supporting Child and Family Wellbeing
Participants will have an opportunity to gain a basic understanding of how the child welfare system currently works, and about innovations and practices that are helping keep children and youth connected to relatives, kin, community and culture even as their parents struggle. The child welfare system is fraught with racial disparities, and all over the country efforts are underway to transform it into a system that focuses on family and child wellbeing. This is a good session for folks who are curious about how the system works.
