Listen to McDermott on CWLA's Internet Radio

Representative Jim McDermott of Washington state, and Tim Briceland-Betts, co-director of CWLA's Government Affairs, were special guests on CWLA's Internet BlogTalkRadio yesterday.

The program focussed on Rep. McDermott's important comprehensive child welfare legislation, the Invest in KIDS Act (HR 5466). This program was the second in the four-part series of programs focused on the child welfare workforce throughout March—National Professional Social Work Month. As we head into the 21st Century and the demand for a competent child welfare workforce increases the need for strategies and solutions to recruit, train and retain competent workers in America's child welfare system.
