This training curriculum offers child welfare service providers with new practices for improving the welfare of newcomer children and their families. The training aims to help service providers deliver culturally competent services, better recognize signs of maltreatment and human trafficking, utilize different resources in assisting immigrant children, and identify legal regulations and their impact on newcomer youth. This curriculum is the result of a collaboration between refugee resettlement agencies and child welfare officials at the Georgia state level and includes a Participant's Guide along with this Trainer's Manual. The Georgia State Refugee Coordinator and state Child Welfare staff presented their collaboration at a BRYCS Roundtable held at the National Conference on Child Abuse and Neglect (NCCAN) in Atlanta in April 2009.
