Among child welfare service and program goals is the achievement of children and youth’s educational progress to match their potential and needs. Educational success of children and youth in the child welfare system depends, in part, on the collective efforts and collaboration of caregivers (foster, adoptive, and kinship), social workers, and agency management to address challenges and strategies for success. This webinar is based on the four-part, skill-building training by the same name that will share how to improve school experiences and long-term outcomes for children who have experienced trauma.
