CEU Course Description
This CEU course provides help with facilitating communication and cooperation between child welfare agencies and federal prisons so that parents can stay engaged in their children’s lives. Explained in this course are common questions: social workers may have when managing cases of children with parents in federal prison; unit teams in federal prisons may have when working with incarcerated parents with children in foster care; and for those at residential reentry centers.

2. Enumerate in which situations every state requires the child welfare agency to file a petition asking the court to terminate parental rights.
3. Describe how child welfare social workers should work with case managers in prisons to make sure proper arrangements are made for the parent to be involved in reunification with their child.
