The Annie E. Casey Foundation recently cohosted a webinar series — The Unlearning of Child Welfare: A National Conversation to Advance Child and Family Well-Being — along with the Institute for Family, the U.S. Children’s Bureau and Chapin Hall at the University of Chicago.

Developed with the input of youth advocates, the series engages child welfare leaders, legislators, advocates and others in a discussion about what is needed to transform the nation’s child welfare system into one that equitably supports children and families in their communities as a means to prevent foster care placements.

The series is made up of three 60-minute episodes of wide-ranging conversations between panelists and participants. View the recorded sessions for free by following the links and using the accompanying passcode:

Session One: Reasons We Should Imagine a New Child and Family Well-Being System

Session Two: Early Examples of Communities Imagining and Creating a Child and Family Well-Being System

Session Three: What Can an Equitable Foster Care Experience Look Like in the Future?
