Subject:RE: CMRL List Posting: Seeking Literature on Continuing Education for Child Welfare Workers/Supervisors

Greetings, I just came across this recommendation that was pertinent to the question raised about simulation in training for child protection. The citation is below for further information. 7) All jurisdictions involved in training staff to work in the field of child protection should consider the implementation and use of mock Court rooms and a mock house. “Whoever you are” An exploration of learning and development models for professional staff in statutory child protection across the United Kingdom, Canada and the USA. 2009 Robert Ryan Obtained from http://www.churchilltrust.com.au/site_media/fellows/2009_Ryan_Robert.pdf 3/30/11 Raelene Freitag MSW, Ph.D. Director Children's Research Center 426 S.

Do you mean role play, or the use of identified clients or discussion of a real or proxy case through the course of the training? I can tell you more if you specify. Also, USC has developed some viritual clients that help Social Workers learn to interact with military personnel and identify the signs of PTSD, etc. This has not moved into child welfare yet, but we are talking about what that might look like.

The project is being conducted by Professors Marion Bogo and Aron Shlonsky at the University of Toronto. We are currently in the process of reviewing databases, journals, and "grey literature" and we would greatly appreciate any suggestions you might have with respect to empirical studies(including those presented only at conferences), curriculum syllabi within child welfare agencies or schools of social work, agency reports, or any other resource that may be relevant to the use of simulations to train child welfare workers/supervisors. Thanks kindly in advance for your consideration of this request. We look forward to hearing from you within the next month and we will be happy to share our findings to any who are interested.
