Description:

During this session, participants will be introduced to the entire play therapy process from start to finish, including how to make skilled responses, identifying therapeutic themes and issues, tracking progress, setting limits, responding to questions and making decisions about termination of sessions.  Additionally, participants will learn how to select toys for the playroom and work with parents effectively. This workshop will provide a framework for conducting play therapy in order to begin conducting this work immediately. Includes didactic information and videotape presentation, as well as role-play and hands-on practice.  If you are serious about play therapy, this workshop is a MUST!  It is CBPS’ thought that every therapist working with children in a mental health capacity should have this training as a foundation regardless of the play therapy modality being used.

PROTECTING CHILDREN, PRESERVING FAMILIES:Lessons from the Indian Child Welfare Act
Presented by: Sarah Kastelic, Ph.D., M.S.W., Executive Director of the National Indian Child Welfare Association (NICWA)
October 30, 2018
7-8pm

WVU Mountainlair Ballroom, Morgantown, WV
Free parking upper floor Mountainlair Garage after 6pm

Approved for 1 SW CE hour for licensed social workers in WV, PA, MD, & VA
No RSVP needed

Event sponsored by the Carolyn Reyer Fund for Native American Studies with assistance from: the Department of Political Science, Department of Psychology, College for Education & Human Resources-Child Development & Family Studies Program and School of Social Work.

Dr. Kastelic will address the historic roots of the passage of the Indian Child Welfare Act, in particular, the importance of tribal and cultural affiliation for American Indian and Alaska Native children, and for Indigenous peoples generally. The passage of ICWA, and ongoing measures to see that it is uniformly enforced, are part of overall efforts to prevent Native children from becoming “cultural orphans.” All those who work to protect children and facilitate healthy, functioning families will be able to learn from the example of the strong advocacy provided through the initial passage of ICWA and the important work that continues through the National Indian Child Welfare Assoc. today. Nationwide, many states have seen increases in the percentage of children being removed from their homes due to the co-mingled factors of parental drug abuse and child neglect. Indeed, states that have been heavily impacted by the current opioid crisis, including West Virginia, depend on the skills of effective social workers to protect children and assist in their foster care placement and/or adoption when necessary

West Virginians for Affordable Health Care

The Children’s Health Collaborative Project’s first challenge is to develop a comprehensive statewide picture of what is already happening in schools and communities in West Virginia. Through surveys of diverse school, health care, and community stakeholders, followed by phone interviews, focus groups, and site visits, we will create a list of programs, key players, community leaders, and successful models to share across the state. Your participation is vital to the success of this worthwhile project!

Background: The West Virginia Children’s Health Collaborative Project, a program of West Virginians for Affordable Health Care, is an innovative partnership between children’s health policy experts, health providers, educators, parents, and community leaders who share the common goal to see every West Virginia child insured, linked to a doctor’s office or primary care provider, and receiving coordinated and continuous needed health and social services. We will build on successful models across our state, support the good work that has already been done, and work to make even more progress.

 

Even though West Virginia is a national leader in reducing the rate of uninsured children and has more school-based health centers per person than any other state, we still see children’s overall health and well-being ranked close to the bottom in national surveys. Today a growing number of West Virginia’s children are in disrupted families and in transition, which creates new barriers to enrollment. And even with an insurance card in-hand, it is difficult to link these children to a medical home and coordinated, continuous care.

 

The Children’s Health Collaborative Project’s first challenge is to develop a comprehensive statewide picture of what is already happening in schools and communities so we can then:

 

1) Assist families of children who do not have private health insurance enroll into West Virginia Medicaid and our Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP);

 

2) Connect children and families to a medical home that can coordinate health and social services; and

 

3) Plan for continuity of services when school is out of session.

 

Through surveys of diverse school, health care, and community stakeholders, followed by phone interviews, focus groups, and site visits, we will create a list of programs, key players, community leaders, and successful models to share across the state.

 

Following the statewide assessment, in August we will share what we learned from our surveys and plan how to both replicate great programs and advance policy changes that can help strengthen the children’s wheel of services – both hub and spokes. We will also have the foundation to create a network of local children’s health experts and community champions who are dedicated to informing policymakers and taking action to improve children’s health and wellbeing at the community, state, and federal levels.

 

Until now, there’s been no uniform effort to compile a comprehensive, statewide picture of how we’re addressing health care in our schools. But The Children’s Health Collaborative Project is not just another research project. It is an initiative to catalyze new voices to speak out and bring positive change supported by a foundation of knowledge and an understanding of what really works to get our children the health care and social service supports that empowers them to succeed.
