PORTLAND, OREGON — The National Indian Child Welfare Association, based in Portland, Oregon, is introducing new workshops through a webinar series geared toward tribal child welfare workers who want to improve their basic skills.
Taken together as a series or individually, these webinars will strengthen the ability to work with children and families and improve case load management. The series will be taught by the organization’s Executive Director Terry Cross, an enrolled member of the Seneca Nation of Indians.
Each session will cover a different topic including:
- Effective interviewing skills
- Case management plans and services
- Working with substance abusing families
- Writing effective court reports
- Case records and documentation
The National Indian Child Welfare Association (NICWA) is a national voice for American Indian children and families. NICWA provides the most comprehensive source of information on American Indian child welfare and the only national American Indian organization focused specifically on the tribal capacity to prevent child abuse and neglect.
The organization’s members include tribes, individuals—both Indian and non-Indian—and private organizations from around the United States concerned with American Indian child and family issues. Collectively, NICWA works with its members to protect the most vital resource of American Indian people—our children.
