The National Child Welfare Resource Center for Organizational Improvement (NCROI), a service of the Children's Bureau, has opened registration for Part II: Expanding Trauma-Informed Services in Child Welfare Systems which will be presented on Thursday, January 10, 2013 at 2:30 pm (EST). Cosponsored by the National Resource Center for Legal and Judicial Issues, the webinar will highlight resources and strategies that child welfare agencies, providers, and courts can use to expand the availability of trauma-informed services across child-serving systems. Presenters will describe resources available from the NCTSN, and local leaders from the child welfare, mental health, and court systems will discuss the steps they have taken to expand trauma-informed services both within their systems and in collaboration with other systems.
Part II follows up November's Part I: Building Systems to Support Trauma-Informed Practice, now available for viewing on the NCROI website, in which presenters from San Diego County, CA and Oklahoma describe a trauma-informed child welfare system, emphasize how the pieces of such a system can fit together to improve outcomes, highlight two sites that participated in a Breakthrough Series Collaborative 2010 to 2012 on using trauma-informed child welfare practice to improve placement stability, and share their experience with building systems to support trauma-informed practice.
