Domestic Child Sex Trafficking and Children in Foster Care (Webinar) (Thu. 28 Jun, 2018 11:00 am - 12:00 pm)

Domestic Child Sex Trafficking and Children in Foster Care (Webinar)
1:00-2:00 p.m. ET, Satellite/Web Based 
June 28, 2018

This session will address Domestic Child Sex Trafficking with the goal of understanding the victim’s perspective, especially those victims who are involved with the child welfare system. Between 50-80 % of trafficking victims have contact with the child welfare system and may have experienced homelessness, a history of previous sexual abuse, drug or alcohol addiction, mental or behavioral health issues, or a history of trauma. The session will explore what makes children in care particularly vulnerable to trafficking, including an understanding of the victim’s trauma experience and behavior, advice on how to communicate with victims through a trauma-informed approach, and practical implications for bringing a case to trial. It will cover the legal framework, including provisions of the Preventing Sex Trafficking and Strengthening Families Act and Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act, and describe numerous state approaches.

Immigration and Children Webinar: Trump’s Policy of Separating Families at the Border: U.S. Law, Court Rulings and Administration Policy (Thu. 28 Jun, 2018 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm)

Trump’s Policy of Separating Families at the Border: U.S. Law, Court Rulings and Administration Policy

Join us for a webinar on Jun 28, 2018 at 1:00 PM EDT.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced his “zero tolerance” policy in April, requiring all those apprehended crossing the border between ports of entry to be referred for criminal prosecution, including parents traveling with small children. As a result, the Trump administration separated approximately 2,500 children from their parents at the Southwest border. This policy ignited bipartisan outrage from all sectors of society including Congress, immigration and civil rights leaders, the religious community, medical professionals, private citizens, and many more. After weeks of sustained criticism President Trump signed an Executive Order on June 20 reversing this damaging policy while at the same time proposing prolonged detention for these families “to the extent permitted by law.” Meanwhile, according to a Department of Homeland Security “Fact Sheet” from June 23, a total of 522 children have been reunified with parents and another 2,053 remain in detention. The Trump administration implemented this policy by choice and ended it due to overwhelming criticism. No law or court ruling mandates family separations.

Join us to hear our experts discuss the latest updates regarding reunification efforts and the administration’s attempt to amend the Flores Settlement Agreement to allow prolonged detention of families. Panelists include: Denise L. Gilman, Clinical Professor and Director of the Immigration Clinic at The University of Texas at Austin School of Law; Meredith A. Linsky, Director of the ABA Commission on Immigration; and Prudence Beidler Carr, Director of the ABA’s Center on Children and the Law and formerly of the Department of Homeland Security Office of General Counsel.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.

Supporting Sustained Permanency - Part 2 (Thu. 28 Jun, 2018 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm)

Supporting Sustained Permanency

June 28 –  2:00 - 3:30 p.m. ET

CWLA is pleased to co-host with Casey Family Programs a two-part webinar on  sustained permanency for children who have been in foster care. While the number of children in foster care has decreased by nearly 25 percent since 2002, the percentage of children who have re-entered care has remained stable. In 2015, nearly 1 in 5 children in out-of-home care — nearly 80,000 children — had been in care before, some more than once. Families that are stable and nurturing can bolster youth resilience and lessen negative long-term effects of adverse childhood experiences—but these protective factors are not available when parents are not supported to provide consistent and continuous nurturing care for their children.

The Supporting Sustained Permanency webinars will share constituents' perspectives and jurisdictional approaches on sustaining permanency, information on re-entry rates, funding opportunities, and practical recommendations to support sustained permanency.

The Part I webinar was held on June 7 and a recording can be viewed on CWLA's "Members Only" website. Participants will benefit from both presentations independently. Reserve your webinar seat at Registration Part II.

This program has been approved for one (1) CEU by the NASW Washington State Chapter.  Licensed Social Workers, Marriage and Family Therapists, and Mental Health Counselors are eligible. Provider number is #1975-176. There is a $20 fee for CEUs for non-members and a $10 fee for CWLA members.  If you are interested in CEUs, please e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots.
