The Child Welfare Team

This pre-service course provides a broad overview of the child welfare system. You’ll learn how the system works, who is involved and their roles and responsibilities, key terms, and goals of the system. A bonus section on supporting sibling relationships of children in care was added to the course in January 2021 (English version only; Spanish update forthcoming). Supplemental handouts round out the course.

  • identify the primary goals of child protective services
  • understand how the child welfare system works
  • understand the stages a typical case follows
  • identify who is on a child's team and their responsibilities
  • know how to work as a team on behalf of a child
  • know best practices for siblings in the care system
4 credit hours, $20.00 per person.
