NTI Child Welfare Supervisor Training

Free state-of-the-art, web-based, standardized training that gives you the ability to learn at your own pace.

Each module includes a short lesson for child welfare supervisors that identifies three key skills from that module that supervisors can help support staff to use in their daily casework practice. Lessons include brief discussion about challenges or barriers to using these skills and how supervisors can address them, potential conversation starters to use with staff, one or more video roleplays demonstrating discussions between supervisors and staff to help build or strengthen staff skills or address challenges staff may encounter in using the skills, as well as a summary of tools from the training that can be used.
