4 C’s of Workforce Development: Culture, Competency, Capacity, & Community
Sep 25 @ 2:00 pm – 3:15 pm
4 C’s of Workforce Development: Culture, Competency, Capacity, & Community

CWLA’s Standards of Excellence (SOEs) have been instrumental in shaping child welfare practice for 70 years. They serve as a foundational tool for improving the national child welfare system, guiding policymakers, practitioners, advocates, and the public. Widely accepted, the SOEs set goals for enhancing services to children and families.

To successfully implement the two new volumes of SOEs to be released this spring/summer, a skilled and compassionate workforce is crucial. Agencies nationwide are seeking ways to attract and retain such a workforce. The workshop will focus on strategies aligned with two workforce-related principles from the new volumes:

  1. Workforce Diversity and Preparedness: Ensuring a diverse, well-resourced, appropriately compensated, and responsive workforce.
  2. Organizational Culture: Creating a safe, supportive, trauma-informed culture that values ongoing learning and is rooted in equity, inclusion, and belonging.

The presentation will feature the CWLA Emerging Leaders Committee Co-Chairs, representing public and private agencies that have implemented strategies aligned with the workforce-related SOEs. The panel will share actionable steps agencies can take to incorporate the SOEs into their strategies, supporting employee wellness, professional development, and community partnerships. Ultimately, this will promote workforce wellness and positive outcomes for families connected to child welfare agencies.

Fostering School Success: How Caregivers & Social Workers Can Support Educational Needs of Children
Sep 26 @ 11:00 am – 1:00 pm
Fostering School Success: How Caregivers & Social Workers Can Support Educational Needs of Children

Among child welfare service and program goals is the achievement of children and youth’s educational progress to match their potential and needs. Educational success of children and youth in the child welfare system depends, in part, on the collective efforts and collaboration of caregivers (foster, adoptive, and kinship), social workers, and agency management to address challenges and strategies for success.

 

CWLA is pleased to invite you to join us for this engaging skill-building opportunity that will share how to improve school experiences and long-term outcomes for children who have experienced trauma. Participants in this training will:

 

  • Develop an understanding of common barriers to educational access and engagement for youth who have experienced trauma.
  • Learn practical strategies for cultivating resilience at home that will lead to improved school performance.
  • Advance their knowledge of the education system and supports available to children with special needs and circumstances.
  • Expand their collaboration and advocacy toolkits to ensure children and youth have access to high quality schooling.

 

This training is appropriate for caregivers (foster, adoptive, and kinship) and social workers who have an interest and responsibility to better support children and youth in school as well as their educational achievement.

 

Using case examples, discussion, skill-building exercises, and opportunities for Q&A, this training draws on the latest research in trauma and learning. The following topics will be covered during the (4) four two-hour individual training sessions:

 

  • Session 1: Common School Challenges for Learners Who Have Experienced Trauma and Best Practice in Trauma-Informed Education

Trainer: Gwen Bass, PhD

Dr. Bass focuses on engaging teachers, families, and the community of support professionals around children to improve school experiences and long-term outcomes. She uses her research and expertise to enhance opportunities for students who are marginalized and improve educational access and outcomes for children with learning differences. Dedicated to training teachers, social workers, and parents so they can collaborate to support children in schools, she is particularly interested in serving children who are the most vulnerable, including youth with disabilities and youth in foster care. As an education consultant, she frequently presents on inclusive classroom practices, behavior management, child development, child welfare systems, parent education, measurement and evaluation of social emotional skills in schools, and trauma-sensitive teaching. Dr. Bass is the former Director of the Teacher Leadership Division, Professional and Graduate Education at Mount Holyoke College. She spent nearly 10 years in pre-K-12 schools as an early childhood educator, special education teacher, and school counselor. She is the author of the recently released publication titled, Immaculate Misconception: A Story of Biology and Belonging.

2023 Health Summit: Advancing Population Health, Equity and Well-Being @ Pennington Biomedical Research Center Conference Center

The 2023 Health Summit: Advancing Population Health, Equity and Well-Being is an exciting conference dedicated to exploring innovative approaches and strategies to improve the health and well-being of our communities.

The Louisiana Center for Health Equity, in collaboration with the Louisiana Department of Health, Pennington Biomedical Research Center and additional partners, is pleased to announce the 2023 Health Summit: Advancing Population Health, Equity and Well-Being. The Summit will open on Tuesday, October 3 at 1:00 PM – 5:30 PM and resume on Wednesday, October 4 at 8:30 AM until 3:30 PM with breaks, including a lunch break.

The 2023 Health Summit will focus on population health, as women and children are severely impacted in Louisiana. The overall purpose of the health summit is to expand collaboration and engagement on LA40by2030, our bold vision of improving health outcomes and the quality of life for Louisiana children and families. The ultimate goal of our collective work is for Louisiana to rank in the top 40 for health outcomes by 2030. This work includes identifying, developing, and promoting practices and policies to support children and families.

Keynote Speakers Announced

We are proud to announce that the 2023 Health Summit distinguished opening keynote speaker will be Camara P. Jones, MD, MPH, PhD, a family physician, epidemiologist, and Past President of the American Public Health Association whose work focuses on naming, measuring, and addressing the impacts of racism on the health and well-being of our nation and the world.

Jahmal Miller, MHA, DHL, an internationally recognized leader and expert on issues pertaining to health care, public health, health equity, mental health and public policy, will serve as morning session keynote speaker.

LaQuandra Nesbitt, MD, MPH, a highly sought-after expert in population health and wellness with over a decade of experience leading population health initiatives in governmental public health agencies will be the closing keynote speaker.

Scroll down to view the preliminary program schedule.

This summit will bring together leading voices on improving the health and well-being of women, children and families. Healthcare professionals, service providers, insurers, researchers, educators, faith-based and non-profit organizations and businesses, as well as policymakers, local and state elected officials, advocates, community health leaders, and the general public will convene to work together on developing key strategies and promoting alignment and collaboration to support better health outcomes across Louisiana.

NEW: Pre-Conference Workshop with Dr. Camara P. Jones – Confronting Racism Denial: Tools for Naming Racism and Moving to Action

Register now for a pre-conference workshop with Camara Jones, MD, MPH, PhD. entitled Confronting Racism Denial: Tools for Naming Racism and Moving to Action on Tuesday, October 3rd from 8:30 AM to 12:00 PM at PBRC Conference Center in Baton Rouge. $45/person in advance.

Known for her allegories on “race” and racism which enable inclusive dialogue on critical public health issues, Dr. Jones is a family physician, epidemiologist, and Past President of the American Public Health Association (APHA). As President of APHA (2016), Dr. Jones launched a National Campaign Against Racism. The initiative catalyzed the first of what are now 260 declarations by local jurisdictions (city councils, county commissions, and state legislatures) across 41 U.S. states and the District of Columbia that “Racism is a public health crisis.”

Racism is a roadblock to achieving racial equity in the United States, yet many people are in denial of its continued existence and profoundly negative impacts on the health and well-being of the nation. And even those who acknowledge that racism exists sometimes feel ill-equipped to say the word “racism” out loud or take action to address it. Dr. Jones aims to inspire and equip participants to engage in anti-racism as a sustained process with three tasks: 1) name racism, 2) ask “How is racism operating here?”, and 3) organize and strategize to act.

TYRC OLE: Compassion and Dependability: An Overview of a Framework for Trauma Responsive Practices in Education
Oct 4 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
TYRC OLE: Compassion and Dependability: An Overview of a Framework for Trauma Responsive Practices in Education

Trauma can leave us feeling isolated or betrayed, which may make it difficult to trust others and receive support. By fostering relationships that are compassionate and attuned, as well as dependable and trustworthy, we help students reestablish trusting connections with others that foster healing and well-being. Compassionate and dependable relationships create opportunities for new, corrective emotional experiences for students impacted by trauma.
