Promoting evidence based policies and practices in child welfare

The Center for Child Welfare Policy is an education and research center with a mission to promote evidence-based "best practice" through the formulation and dissemination of policy and practice approaches that addresses the most important and controversial practice issues and dilemmas in child welfare.

For information about the Center for Child Welfare Policy, contact: Ron Hughes, or call 614/252-0725

Several times a year, the most knowledgeable and creative researchers, thinkers, and practitioners in North America are invited to contribute to developmental colloquies for child welfare policy and practice, resulting in conference summaries, white papers and other publications. TRAINet member agencies and universities will be important resources for these collaborative events. Additional Center products include conferences and lectures, which offer further opportunities for policy development, debate, and presentation.

The Center also administers the Pro Humanitate Awards. The Pro Humanitate medal and $5000 cash prizes are given annually to celebrate outstanding literary achievement of authors from the United States and Canada in the field of child welfare.

 

Child Welfare Issues Colloquies

Attendance at NARCCW colloquies is by invitation. Small groups of ten to twelve participants are selected for each policy symposium based upon knowledge of the subject, practical experience, research or academic expertise, or program and policy development history. Read More

 
The Pro Humanitate Literary Awards

It is the Center for Child Welfare Policy's goal to support bold ideas in the field of child welfare; to promote the critical appraisal of these ideas through good science and open debate; to support the epistemological position that a collective and objective knowledge base can be identified and sustained; to support courageous publication of meritorious work that exemplifies these principles; and to support the moral position that it is our responsibility to do so.

Toward these ends, the Center for Child Welfare Policy of the North American Resource Center for Child Welfare (NARCCW) has conceived the Pro Humanitate Literary Awards.
