The Center for Advanced Studies in Child Welfare announces release of two new online learning modules

The Center for Advanced Studies in Child Welfare (CASCW) has developed, in collaboration with faculty members, a series of online learning modules, designed to present the latest practice-relevant child welfare research from top researchers at the University of Minnesota in a format that is timely, efficient and easy to use for today's busy child welfare professionals.

CASCW is adding to its library of online learning modules with the release of two new modules on the following topics:

Common Factors in Case Management with Children & Their Families (2 CEHs available) This module describes four common factors to use in case management with children and their families. The common factors model identifies and documents four elements of psychotherapy with good outcomes. The module guides viewers to develop skills in using the four factors with children and families.

Working with Karen Refugee Youth and Families (1.0 CEHs available) This module provides information about working with Karen refugees from Burma. It offers information about their history in Minnesota, about their experiences while living in camps, and about the effects of the trauma they have experienced on their mental health. It provides recommendations for child welfare workers in their work with Karen refugee youth and families.
