What does it mean to be Culturally Smart?

 being aware of one's own world view

 developing positive attitudes towards cultural differences

 gaining knowledge of different cultural practices and world views

 developing skills for communication and interaction across cultures

This training experience is designed for multidisciplinary professionals who touch the lives of families and children in the Child Welfare System. It is developed to enhance the ability of child welfare practitioners to respond to the unique needs and differences of children and families of various racial and ethnic groups in ways that are culturally congruent to improve outcomes for children and families. Culture S.M.A.R.T. is an engaging experience that simulates aspects of what it is like to “walk in another racial, ethnic or cultural group’s shoes.” In the shoes of another person and come face to face with personal bias and perspectives and assumptions. This training helps us to build skills and knowledge of other cultures and identify opportunities for growth and development in a safe environment. Presenting cultural differences as a reflection of the way we solve similar problems promotes a sense of our common humanity, recognize we are all in this together for challenges in Child Welfare. Understanding this basic notion allows us to view cultural differences as a rich reservoir of solutions to real world concerns. Instead of looking upon cultural differences as things to be tolerated, we can relate to each other as cultural problem solvers with the same desired goals – better outcomes for children and families.

Clearing the Path to Access Benefits for Transition-Aged Youth (Thu. 3 Dec, 2020 11:00 am - 12:30 pm)

Clearing the Path to Access Benefits for Transition-Aged Youth

The Coronavirus pandemic has created a volatile economic and social environment, making the experience of transitioning to adulthood and self-sufficiency even more challenging for older foster youth. Many young people in this phase of life qualify for an array of benefits – from stimulus money, to housing vouchers, to scholarships, to disability benefits and beyond; yet many eligible youth are unaware of these benefits and how to access them.
 
This webinar will highlight the stories of youth with lived experience in facing, and in some cases breaking through, these barriers to self-sufficiency. A panel of leading national advocates and attorneys will then share existing avenues to provide immediate relief to youth in and exiting care and policy recommendations to dismantle systemic barriers to self-sufficiency. Participants will leave with a greater understanding of potential benefits available to their clients, and a clearer path to access them.

Children's Trust Fund Alliance's (Alliance's) 6th Virtual BPNN Convening (Thu. 3 Dec, 2020 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm)

This event is free of charge.  Please feel free to share the attached flyer with your friends and colleagues.  Our theme for this year is Creating Thriving Families and Communities in a 21st Century Child Well-Being System.

The convening will include the following:

*  A presentation from our lead national trainer, Maureen Hollocker, and members of the training team on the protective factors framework, using resources from the Alliance's highly regarded national protective factors training, Bringing the Protective Factors to Life in Your Work. If you would like a refresher on the protective factors and/ or an introduction for yourself or others, you will want to be sure to participate.

*  Margaret Hunt, Senior Director, National Partnerships, Casey Family Programs and Natalie Towns, Prevention Section Director, Georgia Division of Family and Children Services will join us for a discussion on Communities of Hope, a concept developed by Casey Family Programs, and a look at a powerful example of this work in the state of Georgia. Children and families can best thrive when they have the opportunity to live and grow in caring and supportive communities and this work helps make that possible.

During this challenging time, it is important for us to focus attention on what we can be doing together to keep our families and communities strong and this Virtual Convening will help us continue to move forward in that direction.

Please be sure to register! We look forward to having you participate. CLICK HERE

Dual System Youth: At the Intersection of Child Maltreatment and Delinquency (Thu. 3 Dec, 2020 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm)

Dual System Youth: At the Intersection of Child Maltreatment and Delinquency​

As part of its Research for the Real World Seminar Series, NIJ is hosting the “Dual System Youth: At the Intersection of Child Maltreatment and Delinquency” webinar.

Across the country, child welfare and juvenile justice systems now recognize that youth involved in both systems (i.e., dual system youth) are a vulnerable population who often go unrecognized because of challenges in information-sharing and cross system collaboration. In light of these challenges, national incidence rates of dual system youth are not known. To address this gap in knowledge, Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention awarded the presenters a grant to: (1) propose a methodology to generate a national estimate of dual system youth, their trajectories leading to multiple system involvement, and the key characteristics/trajectories of this population; and (2) identify the successes and challenges associated with cross-system collaboration and information sharing in jurisdictions.
