One of the primary challenges in the child welfare field is the relationship between professionals working as case managers and the parents of children placed in care. Parents who have their children removed and placed in foster care experience feelings of shame and grief, which is manifested through anger and outrage and often directed towards case workers and foster parents. Managing these feelings is perhaps the primary barrier facing child welfare workers as they attempt to build a working alliance or therapeutic relationship with parents. This course will discuss how to engage parents in foster care and overcome parental anger in order to effectively work towards family reunification. This course also presents ideas to effectively help case managers and other professionals interact more positively and effectively with parents experiencing anger due to their engagement with the child welfare system, increasing positive outcomes for the entire family system.

This course discusses depression in children and adolescents with a focus on the signs of depression, risk factors, and co-occurring disorders commonly seen.
