December/January 2024Vol. 24, No. 10Tribal Child Welfare Practice Path

A free training from the Capacity Building Center for Tribes (Center for Tribes) is now available for child welfare staff from tribal programs funded through titles IV-B and IV-E. "Tribal Child Welfare Practice Path" helps frontline workers grow their foundational knowledge and practice skills and develop a culturally based, trauma-informed practice lens needed to serve American Indian/Alaska Native children and families.

Tribal child welfare programs can learn more about the training by viewing the Center for Tribes' introductory webinar, presented by the training's developers and facilitators, Cortney Bolt (Citizen Potawatomi Nation) and Dallas Pettigrew (Cherokee Nation). The webinar covers the training's key content areas and includes a conversation with workers from the Ho-Chunk Nation who speak about their pilot training experience.

To learn more, view the 1-page information sheet and the "Introducing the Tribal Child Welfare Practice Path" webinar recording.
