Reflecting the interdisciplinary nature of the course, ICWI is taught by Fawn Gadel, Professor at Capital University Law School, with several social work professionals participating as guest speakers to represent the child welfare perspective.
Capital University Law School, in conjunction with the Family and Youth Law Center (FYLaw), is pleased to offer a one-week intensive Interdisciplinary Child Welfare Institute (ICWI). This two-credit course will provide law students and graduate level social work students with a mutual understanding of the legal and sociological principles central to child welfare practice. In the increasingly complex world of child welfare, quality collaboration among legal and social work professionals is critical to keeping children safe and strengthening families. Interdisciplinary learning provides a common foundation for students from different professional programs and an environment for developing the skills required of future child welfare attorneys and social workers.
