Individual Learner Centered Skill Development for the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA)

Support sessions are utilized to address a caregiver’s specific needs and build specific skills. Identified goals are created and progress toward those goals is measured by both the learner and the coach after the session. Prior to scheduling a support session, caregivers need to complete the class “Parenting a Native American Child: Partnering in the Interest of Culture for Caregivers (eLearning).” This session provides in-depth support around specific topics identified by the caregiver as needed. The topics for this session may include: 1.       Understanding ICWA, regulations, and expectations state staff must follow; 2.       What is most important for caregivers to know (jurisdiction, Tribes’ voice in cases, connection for the child, etc.); 3.       Placement preference; 4.       Active Efforts; 5.       QEW (Qualified Expert Witness); 6.       LICWAC (Local Indian Child Welfare Advisory Committee); and 7.       Permanency.
