The Florida Department of Children and Families is pleased to announce the 2019 Child Protection Summit. Originally known as the Dependency Court Improvement Summit, over the past 22 years, the annual training conference has continued to emphasize the importance of bringing together child welfare professionals and related partners to share and exchange best practices while enhancing collaborations across professions. The Summit offers an extraordinary program of current and relevant training topics to further advance the knowledge base of child welfare staff in many critical areas of importance. As the largest child welfare event in Florida, the Department anticipates the 2019 Child Protection Summit will be attended by child welfare professionals and related partners, including: attorneys, case managers, child advocates, child protective investigators and supervisors, Child Protection Team staff, child welfare trainers, court staff, DCF staff, relative and non-relative caregivers, foster and adoptive parents, Guardians ad Litem, judges, law enforcement, juvenile justice professionals, educators, service providers, and youth.
Conference attendees may earn CLE, CJE, CE, and In-Service Training hours at the Summit. In-Service Training hours can be counted towards your child welfare certification through the Florida Certification Board. The conference brochure will include a Continuing Education page with detailed information.
