Get Ideas About Training From Michigan Site
For a snapshot of the way one State is implementing training for workers in the areas of prevention, CPS, foster care, adoption, and juvenile justice, visit the website of Michigan's Child Welfare Training Institute operated by the Family Independence Agency.
The site describes the Institute, a mandatory 8-week training program required of all newly hired child welfare workers and supervisors, including contract agency staff. Course descriptions, schedules, and other materials are available online.
Michigan also provides cross-disciplinary training to law enforcement officers, prosecutors, and child protective services workers, and provides a curriculum on domestic violence for CPS workers.
