This training session is designed for tribal social workers or advocates that represent tribes in Indian Child Welfare Act cases known as Dependency cases. “Dependency” or “Juvenile Dependency” is the area of law involving children who are or may be at risk of abuse or neglect. In these cases, the child eligible for ICWA must be a dependent of a California State Court. Tribal social workers and advocates will learn more about the complex state child welfare system (known as Juvenile Dependency law).
