Join Us This Month for CWLA's 2005 Teleconference Series

2/17/2005:   CWLA is holding the second session in its 2005 teleconference series, Competence On Call, on February 24. The highly acclaimed series provides agencies with a convenient, cost-effective way to keep staff informed and involved in critical child welfare issues. The modest registration fee includes one telephone line and a complete set of program materials.

The 2005 series includes five sessions, from January to May, focused on child trauma (registration in the first January session is not required to participate in subsequent sessions). Specifically, we will discuss the developmental impact of child trauma, how knowledge of child trauma can enhance child welfare practice in various settings such as schools and residential treatment centers, and focus on understanding evidence-based child trauma interventions that can be used to treat child sexual abuse. Presenters are all nationally recognized experts and members of the National Child Traumatic Stress Network.

The subject of the call on February 24, 2:00-3:30 p.m. EST, is an overview of eight essential elements of services to children and their families who have experienced traumatic stress. Through a simulated worker-supervisor consultation, presenters will explore trauma-specific issues at key points in a case, including some that might be misinterpreted or overlooked.

Register for any of the teleconferences.
