Title IV-E Integrative Seminars and Trainings


Title IV-E students are required to attend monthly seminars. Training Seminars will address mandated at risk training, to supplement the student's generalist education with valuable information that will expand the student's child welfare knowledge and provide students with an opportunity to integrate theory with practice.

Additional Title IV-E seminars are required during the academic year to supplement the field seminars by offering foundation and advanced child welfare practice training. These seminar hours do not count as part of the 16 or 24 field practicum hours.
