Chronic Neglect Virtual Series
The American Humane Association, in partnership with the National Association of Public Child Welfare Administrators, is now offering the Chronic Neglect Virtual Series (CNVS) as a new way for child welfare workers and related professionals to collaborate to help advance practices and policies on chronic neglect. CNVS provides registered participants with a virtual community center to discuss successes and challenges in working with families impacted by chronic neglect. The month-long virtual discussion period is followed by a web conference featuring guest speakers that will address current research and field-based experiences.
CNVS currently offers sessions on two themes:
- Chronic neglect intervention: Community collaboration and multidisciplinary approaches
- Chronic neglect-substance abuse connections
Participants should register as a team of three to six key individuals in their community, such as child welfare administrators, supervisors, frontline workers, training coordinators and/or community partners (e.g., public health nurses, judicial officials).
