Course Description:
This self-paced, online Baby Court training course provides the participant with eight hours of content focused upon the needs of infants, young children, and families who are involved in the child welfare system. Baby Court is a collaborative, integrated approach for improving safety, permanency, and well-being outcomes for infants and toddlers and their families. This training prepares jurists, attorneys, child welfare professionals, and infant mental health clinicians to work as part of a Baby Court team.

Course Modules:

Part 1: Why do Babies Need a Specialized Court?

Part 2: Inequities in Child Welfare: Awareness can promote equity

Part 3: A Family’s Experience: CPS, Baby Court, and Foster Care

Part 4: Infant Mental Health and Baby Court

Part 5: Progressing Toward Reunification: Testimony, Reports, Baby Court Team collaboration

The objectives of the Baby Court training are for participants to gain an understanding of:

  1. the Michigan child welfare system and its legislation.
  2. the need for a Baby Court to address the needs of babies and toddlers in the child welfare system.
  3. the members and collaborative role of the Baby Court team.
  4. the values of Baby Court team members.
  5. inequities in the child welfare system.
  6. the impact of implicit bias in our work with families.
  7. the child welfare process from allegation to case closure.
