Mediation in Child Welfare

 
Mediation in Child Welfare is a nonjudgmental process that involves parents, when possible, in the future planning for their children when there have been allegations of abuse and neglect. Across the nation, mediation has been a useful tool for resolving questions such as placement, visitation, service plans, compliance issues and permanency. Learn the skills of a neutral, third person to facilitate a conversation with birth parents, case managers, youth workers, social workers and attorneys as a means of helping resolve disputes and expedite permanency for children in care. The skills are also useful in the typical role of "case worker" and for those participating in the mediation process in their current professional role.
