Attendees will be better prepared to understand the unique experience of their Indigenous clients which will enhance their ability to apply the new provisions of the CYFSA to their practice.
Attendees will also gain an enhanced understanding of the importance of listening to and considering a child’s views on a child protection file.
Finally, participants will learn how Alternative Dispute Resolution options in child protection matters can try to reduce delay and provide culturally appropriate resolutions for children and families.
