Priority Training Opportunities

This page provides information about OCWTP learning activities that address high priority learning needs as identified by the statewide CFSR/CPOE reviews and individual training needs assessments--and may be useful for informing your training decisions.

As indicated below, the learning activities are offered through a variety of delivery methods (workshops, GAP sessions, learning labs, and coaching) and learning platforms (in the classroom, distance learning, or on-the-job learning). Some learning activities can be used in a variety of ways: from self-directed “just in time” trainings to on-the-job sessions to be led by a supervisor (instructional support provided).

Finally, each of the learning activities has been designed to accommodate an appropriate level of learning for its intended audience—from the learner who knows very little on the topic to the learner who is looking to refine skills.

Feel free to peruse this page directly, or first view a video demo of the page.

Engaging Families in Planned and Purposeful Visitation

E-Track Learning No. 118-1-S

When the goal is permanency, facilitating safe and successful visitations between children and their families is fundamental. The research is clear: effective visitation shortens time spent in foster care and helps return children to their homes. Yet in most child welfare systems, visitation is often just a supervised encounter in an office. Here’s a training that can change that practice for the benefit of all.
Bullet

What is Engaging Families in Planned and Purposeful Visitation?

 

It is a blended distance-learning course in which four primary purposes of visitation are discussed. Strategies for assessment, meeting the developmental needs of the child, teaching and modeling parenting skills, and determining the permanency plan are all outlined. In addition, current research regarding both the critical importance of regularly-scheduled visitations and the key elements of a visitation plan is discussed.

Bullet

Who is the intended audience?

 

This course is designed for supervisors, caseworkers, and caregivers.

Level(s) of Learning Addressed

 

The Fatherhood Initiative: Involving & Empowering Dads in Child Welfare Practice

Caseworkers & Supervisors: Did you know that according to National Father Initiative statistics (2009), children whose fathers are absent are five times more likely to live in poverty, three times more likely to fail school, and two to three times more likely to commit suicide?

In addition:

  • In 1995, President Bill Clinton named father absence as one of the biggest social problems in our society--leading to a host of other social issues. Fathers, he added, are powerful role models for "teaching boys how to be men and girls how to expect respect from men."
  • At the 2001 National Summit on Fatherhood, President George W. Bush identified our society's need to foster responsible fatherhood as "a national priority."
  • On his current website, President Obama affirms the importance of helping fathers to "be good partners and parent providers" and to "make responsible choices for their children."
Bullet

What are the Fatherhood learning activities?

 

They are training and coaching opportunities that assist caseworkers in searching for fathers, identifying fathers, and engaging fathers for children involved in the child welfare system. Participants will have an increased awareness of the critical role fathers play in their children’s lives.

The Transcending
Differences Diversity Toolkit

Caseworkers & Supervisors: Few would disagree that honoring the diversity of children and families is "the right thing to do." Even so, it's hard to know what "honoring diversity" looks like in both action and attitude--and how it can improve child welfare outcomes. That's where the Transcending Differences Diversity Toolkit comes in.

Bullet What is the Transcending Differences Diversity Toolkit?

It's a compilation of skill-building activities and resources designed to enhance child welfare practitioners' ability to work across the differences they encounter with children and families.

    A Facilitation Guide for Supervisors is also available.

  • Assessing What We See (foundational level)
    A short, interactive online course (30-60 minutes) that prepares you mentally for the task of making unbiased assessments. As a critical first step, you will practice the challenging skill of describing events, people, and behaviors without imposing value-driven judgements or interpretations.

  • Interviewing Skills for Responsive Diversity Practice (skill-building level)
    [E-Track No. 307-14-S]
    A six-hour workshop that helps caseworkers ask questions in a way that invites authentic input, identifies and honors a client's diversity, and informs their casework powerfully and effectively.

The Child Welfare
Trauma Training Toolkit



Caring for
Children Who Have
Experienced Trauma:
A Workshop for
Resource Parents



Building Partnerships:
Providing Trauma-focused Cognitive Behavioral  Therapy
for Youth in Care


Level(s) of Learning Addressed

Trauma Training

Caseworkers and caregivers: Studies show that a majority of children and youth who enter the child welfare system show symptoms of traumatic stress and are in desperate need of intervention. But would you recognize the symptoms if you were to see them, and would you know how to respond once you recognized them? If you said "no" to either of these questions, trauma training is meant for you.

Bullet What is Trauma Training?

Trauma training focuses on understanding trauma and its impact on the children we serve. These trainings will provide foundational knowledge about complex trauma, coping, resiliency, and secondary traumatic stress.
There are currently two multi-session series (one for caregivers and one for caseworkers) and one stand-alone course that make up the menu of standardized trauma training. These include the following offerings:

  • The Child Welfare Trauma Training Toolkit. A four-module series of workshops developed by The National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN) to help agency staff embrace trauma-informed child welfare practice. The three-hour modules include the following:
    • NCTSN Toolkit: Overview of Trauma and Its Effect on Children [E-Track  No. 318-3 -NOS]
    • NCTSN Toolkit: The Impact of Trauma and the Importance of Safety [E-Track No. 318-33-NOS]
    • NCTSN Toolkit: Identifying Trauma-related Needs and Enhancing Well-being [E-Track No. 318-34-NOS]
    • NCTSN Toolkit: Worker Well-being and the Importance of Partnering [E-Track No. 318-35-NOS]

  • Caring for Children Who Have Experienced Trauma: A Workshop for Resource Parents. A four-module series of workshops developed by The National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN) to help caregivers provide trauma-informed care to the children in their homes. The three-hour modules include:
    • Caring For Children Who Have Experienced Trauma: Trauma 101   [E-Track No. 991-2-NOS]
    • Caring For Children Who Have Experienced Trauma: Understanding Trauma’s Effects & Building A Safe Place [E-Track No. 991-3-NOS]

  • Building Partnerships: Providing Trauma-focused Cognitive Behavioral  Therapy for Youth in Care [E-Track No. 318-15-S]

In addition to standardized trauma training, several OCWTP trainers offer specialized courses in this area. In E-Track, you can do an advanced search using either the caseworker classification “Trauma: Services to Children Who Have Experienced Trauma, and Their Families,” or the caregiver classification “Trauma: Helping Children Who Have Experienced Trauma.”

Bullet

Who is the intended audience?

 
  • Building Partnerships: Providing Trauma-focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Youth in Care is designed for therapists and caseworkers to attend together.
  • The Child Welfare Trauma Training Toolkit is intended for caseworkers.
  • Caring for Children Who Have Experienced Trauma: A Workshop for Resource Parents is intended for foster caregivers.
