Child Welfare Credential Pilot Project

In partnership with the Center for Advanced Studies in Child Welfare (CASCW), we’ve developed and launched a pilot training program in “Understanding Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health.”

The program includes online and in-person coursework that draws on infant and mental health principles. Coursework aims to help individuals understand early social and emotional development and work with parents with special considerations. The program also includes online reflective consultation.


This partnership is funded, in part, under the auspices of Federal Title IV-E Funding, Minnesota Department of Human Services (Contract # 439481), the Center for Advanced Studies in Child Welfare at the University of Minnesota School of Social Work.
