Culturally Responsive Child Welfare Practice (CW360º)
Center for Advanced Studies on Child Welfare (CASCW), School of Social Work, College of Education and Human Development, University of Minnesota
Most often the discussion around culture and child welfare is framed as a struggle or challenge for our field to address. This issue, created in partnership with the Center for Regional and Tribal Child Welfare Studies at the University of Minnesota–Duluth, reflects CASCW’s belief that the field needs to move beyond this to examine how culture can be used to make a difference in our work with all families. Through culturally responsive practice, we believe we will see true change in disparity and disproportionality in child welfare.
In addition to research, overview, and stakeholder perspective articles, this issue features an expanded practice section focusing on innovative, community developed practices.
Child Welfare 360° (CW360°) is an annual publication that provides communities, child welfare professionals, and other human service professionals, comprehensive information on the latest research, policies and practices in a key area affecting child well-being today. The publication uses a multidisciplinary approach for its robust examination of an important issue in child welfare practice and invites articles from key stakeholders, including families, caregivers, service providers, a broad array of child welfare professionals (including educators, legal professionals, medical professionals and others), and researchers. Social issues are not one dimensional and cannot be addressed from a single vantage point. We hope that reading CW360° enhances the delivery of child welfare services across the country while working towards safety, permanency and well-being for all children and families being served.
