2018 UT Child Welfare Conference

CWConf18 Logo

A person’s definition of home and love comes from their own experiences. As professionals in the Child Welfare field, we recognize that when children enter the foster care system they are often caught between two worlds. As a child welfare practitioner, researcher or advocate, it is essential that we learn more about family experiences and acknowledge the importance of all people involved in the process, including – Foster Parents, Biological Parents, Caseworkers, Child Advocates, etc. This is why we are focusing on building strong foundations for ALL families in child welfare at the 2018 UT Child Welfare Conference hosted by Texas Institute of Child and Family Wellbeing.
