Topics addressed in these two sections include:

  • Recruitment, hiring, and retention
  • Managing and supervising the workforce
  • Training for administrators, supervisors, caseworkers, families, and community partners
  • Training curricula, tools, and materials in Spanish
  • Assessing and evaluating training programs
  • Education and training organizations and social work programs

In addition, the Resources in Spanish section of the Information Gateway website (formerly, En Español) now provides easier access to publications and other online resources written in Spanish to support child welfare workers in their interaction with Spanish-speaking families. The web section is written in both English and Spanish and offers general resources as well as resources organized according to topics on the Information Gateway website, including:

  • Preventing and responding to child abuse and neglect
  • Supporting and preserving families
  • Out-of-home care
  • Adoption
