policy, Family

This webinar focused on the shared goals of the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA) and Resource Family Approval (RFA) on family placement detailing how and where ICWA and RFA intersect with the intention of supporting Tribal children and their families.

We highlighted the critical components of ICWA and the RFA process. In addition, we explored the implementation of the Child and Family Team in assessment, placement, and services planning to help achieve positive outcomes for safety, permanency, and well-being.
