Our social workers co-case managed CPS cases w/respective Counties. Primary objective was to reunify American Indian parents w/their children & make sure the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA), MIFPA & MN Tribal State Agreement was followed. Am now providing in-home therapeutic services to American Indian foster children & their perspective caregivers based on the needs of the child. I use the Integrative Attachment Trauma Protocol of EMDR for use w/Abused & Neglected Children.
