Foundations of Pennsylvania Child Welfare Practice:
Building Competence, Confidence, and Compassion


What is Foundations? Our revision and redesign of Charting the Course

  • Incorporation of the newly designed child welfare competencies
  • Similar content as it relates to the core issues of safety, permanency and well-being
  • Additional focus on topics such as personal safety, retention and self-care
  • Enhanced partnerships between CWRC and counties, as we provide the training and the counties provide the practice setting where workers apply their new skills.


Delivery of content will be done through:

  • Short online courses designed to provide basic knowledge
  • Traditional classroom and simulation-type settings
  • Specific activities to reinforce new knowledge and apply skills to their work
