Resource: Learning Module–Parents with Disabilities in Child Welfare

The Center for Advanced Studies in Child Welfare (CASCW) is pleased to share another FREE learning module series from experts in the field! CASCW’s online modules are self-directed learning opportunities for child welfare professionals, foster parents, advocates, and others interested in the topics. They were developed in order to present the child welfare practice-relevant findings of research undertaken by faculty and staff at the School of Social Work as well as partners across the University of Minnesota.

The modules consist of narrated PowerPoint presentations with a variety of media attached (e.g. watching videos, reading documents, etc.).

This three-part module, Parents with Disabilities in Child Welfare, covers the historical context and prevalence, related policies and social supports for parents with disabilities.
