February 2007Vol. 8, No. 1Child Welfare Training Innovations
The fall 2006 issue of Child Welfare Matters, produced by the National Child Welfare Resource Center on Organizational Improvement (NRCOI), focuses on innovations in child welfare training. The lead article covers a recent training symposium co-hosted by the NRCOI at the University of Southern Maine and the Butler Institute for Families at the University of Denver. In an effort to improve the organizational and training capabilities of child welfare agencies, the symposium brought together training managers, executive decision-makers, and university partners. Participants were able to share key experiences and work toward a common goal of training systems improvement.
Other articles in this issue of Child Welfare Matters explore Pennsylvania's training system, youth as trainers, county human service director training, and ways to enhance supervision.
