Use these supplemental materials to learn more about how seeking the contributions of people with lived experience can help child welfare professionals improve their programs and services, especially for groups that historically have been marginalized and who disproportionately experience social and economic barriers.

This resource list can be used with the Learning Experience video, in which presenters discuss the idea that incorporating people with lived expertise can help child welfare professionals improve their practice, and the CWVE 2022 Learning Experience Discussion Guide, which provides a description of the topic, reflection questions for individual learning, and conversation starters and team activities for child welfare staff and collaborative partners to explore together.
