A Learning Program for NYC Child Welfare and Juvenile Justice Professionals
The COVID-19 pandemic has created a need for a shift in practices for our child welfare and juvenile justice staff serving children, youth, and families in NYC. This crisis has required staff to use video-conferencing when face-to-face contacts are not viable. While the platform may be different, the responsibility to promote safety, permanency, and well-being has not changed. This 3-hour course provides learners with the opportunity to explore tips and strategies necessary to gather information virtually to support assessments and informed decision making. Learners also participate in a simulation where they receive coaching and practice using the skills and strategies discussed to support strengths-based engagement and virtual information gathering.
This course is designed for all direct service staff in Child Welfare and Juvenile Justice.
