National Indian Child Welfare Association (NICWA) Launches ICWA Online Course

This course will benefit families, including foster families, through training ICWA-compliant, culturally competent child welfare workers. Child welfare programs and tribes will be empowered by the presentation of ICWA provisions in non-legal language and in the order in which a case worker might encounter them in an ICWA case. The course is ideal for anyone involved in the out-of-home placement of American Indian and Alaska Native children throughout the United States.
 
Those registering for the online training course by April 15, 2017, will be entered in a special drawing for a chance to win one of ten Gregg Deal ICWA posters entitled “Our Children Are Not Yours to Take.” To learn more about other special offers, locate more information, or to register for the course, visit www.nicwa.org/icwa_course.
