Children in the child welfare and juvenile justice systems may have significant challenges in the school setting. Abuse, neglect, and trauma all impact the child’s ability to concentrate and focus. In addition, if a child moves from one home or setting to another, the child may change schools -in fact, some children change schools several times. Given this, children may need additional help and support in the school setting and you may find that teens may need help with vocational and career decisions.

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.
