Opportunities for Culturally Relevant Prevention

A new webi­nar record­ing exam­ines the role of cul­ture in pro­vid­ing effec­tive pro­grams to pre­vent child wel­fare involve­ment. Dur­ing the 60-minute ses­sion, view­ers will learn how the Fam­i­ly First Pre­ven­tion Ser­vices Act has cre­at­ed oppor­tu­ni­ties to expand the use of pre­ven­tion pro­grams rel­e­vant to the fam­i­lies and their cul­tur­al back­grounds and practices.

Engag­ing Trib­al Moth­ers With Tra­di­tion: Fam­i­ly First Act Oppor­tu­ni­ties for Cul­tur­al­ly Rel­e­vant Pre­ven­tion is part of a webi­nar series — Lead­ing With Evi­dence: Inform­ing Prac­tice With Research — from the Annie E. Casey and William T. Grant foun­da­tions. Each Lead­ing With Evi­dence install­ment brings togeth­er child wel­fare lead­ers, researchers and pro­gram devel­op­ers to learn about advanc­ing the use of evi­dence in the child wel­fare field.
