SWK 645 - Child Welfare II

3 Credit Hours
This course is the second of two courses needed to complete all of the study requirements for achieving a Child Welfare Employee License. The focus is on determining the strengths and needs of children and knowing the child welfare process for children who are determined to be in need of social services. Students will learn how to use the Child and Adolescent Needs and Strengths (CANS) tool in determining what the needs of the child and adolescent as well as their families are. Students will also learn how to engage, assess, intervene, and evaluate children and adolescents who are in the child welfare system. They will learn how to engage in family-centered, trauma-informed, strengths-based practice, how to plan for permanency for children in out-of-home care, and how to work with the Juvenile Court. Students will also take the CANS exam and the Placement exam, both of which, when combined with the two exams in Child Welfare I, are required to obtain a Child Welfare Employee License. Upon employment by a child welfare agency, students will be able to obtain their Child Welfare Employee License.
