Safe Babies Court Team and Foster Care Webinar

May 21 @ 7:00 am 8:00 am

Join us for a Safe Babies Court Team and Foster Care Webinar

In Washington State, children under the age of 3 made up 43% of dependency cases filed in 2023. Of all children who go into care in Washington state, 30% are infants under 1 year, the second-highest rate in the country. Early childhood experiences shape children’s brain development and have life-long impacts on their social, emotional, and physical well-being. Timely and appropriate interventions help maltreated babies and families heal. In this presentation, we will discuss what the Safe Babies Court Team Approach is, how it’s being implemented in Washington, and understand how attachment issues commonly manifest in children with complex trauma histories, often leading to challenges in placement and home stability.. Registration is required.

Presenters:

  • Emily Nicewonger, Associate Director of Innovation, Center for Children and Youth Justice
  • Nathan LaChine, Therapeutic Foster Parent and Community Educator, Coordinated Care
