2018 Theme: “Fostering a Healthy Workforce”

This year’s Virtual Expo highlighted the critical importance of developing agency capacity and programs that foster healthy work environments for child welfare professionals. Sessions covered strategies for:

  • Conducting a collaborative workforce needs assessment
  • Using coaching effectively within the context of child welfare supervision and casework practice
  • Implementing a simulation training program at a child welfare agency
  • Providing ongoing support to staff working in a trauma-exposed environment

Engaging presentations featured insights from national subject matter experts, child welfare professionals, partners, parents, and youth. Each session included presentations and a virtual reflection activity to help you apply presentation concepts to your daily work.

Continuing education units (CEUs) are available for those who attended the Child Welfare Virtual Expo 2018 on July 12.
