by Kimbrell, V., M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2016, 63; 10065209
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this grant proposal is to fund the development of a competency-based training of trainer’s companion manual to the Child Welfare League of America’s (CWLA) Strengthening Families and Communities for Children: A Global Initiative to Support Kinship Caring and Collaborating curriculum. The manual intends to prepare qualified child welfare staff and kinship caregivers to teach others how to implement two CWLA curricula in their respective countries. This initiative is working with child welfare non-governmental organizations (NGO) in six countries within the European Union (EU). A literature review specifies the history of child welfare in the EU including transitioning from institutionalized care to family-oriented kinship care. Descriptions of training programs and their effectiveness are identified. The proposal includes potential funding sources, a needs assessment, implementation method, staffing, evaluation, and proposed budget. Actual funding and submission were not requirements for the successful completion of this project.
