American Humane, in conjunction with the University of Southern Maine, developed a 12-day, four-part training curriculum for child welfare supervisors. Titled "Mastering the Art of Supervision," the curriculum is tailored for each state or county to include local policies and procedures. From the early 1990s through 2009, American Humane trained all new supervisors in Colorado using a modified version of the curriculum (titled "Putting the Pieces Together"), developed in conjunction with the Butler Institute for Families at the University of Denver. In recent years, American Humane has used customized versions of the curriculum to train supervisors in California, North Dakota, South Dakota and Connecticut.
The training consists of four modules:
The training is available to new supervisors in private child welfare agencies. New supervisors value this training not only for its excellent curriculum, but because it provides a wonderful opportunity to meet other supervisors from across the state to discuss similar challenges and share new ideas about child welfare practice.
