The National Indian Child Welfare Association is dedicated to the well-being of all American Indian children and families. Its vision is that every Indian child must have access to community-based, culturally appropriate services that help them grow up safe, healthy and spiritually strong—free from abuse, neglect, sexual exploitation and the damaging effects of substance abuse.

It sponsors ICW Training Institutes on topics such as Indian Extended Family and Foster Care, Positive Indian Parenting, and Cross-Cultural Skills. It produces a range of educational, training and promotional materials, including a Suicide Prevention Toolkit, State Fact Sheets, and a Tribal Directory.

It offers the following onsite training workshops:

  • Child Protection Teams Adoption and Safe Families Act
  • Cross-Cultural Skills in Indian Child Welfare
  • Enhancing Cultural Competence in Human Service Settings
  • Grassroots Child Abuse Prevention
  • Heritage and Helping (five curriculum modules)
  • Indian Child Welfare Act (beginning and advanced)
  • Our Children’s Future (10 hours, one-credit designed for Head Start and preschool programs interested in implementing a child sexual abuse prevention curriculum in their schools)
  • Positive Indian Parenting.

Workshop fees are negotiable. Other workshops are available by arrangement at $1600/day.
