Five of these sessions, which feature the â€œYellow Book,â€ Guidelines for Achieving Permanency in Child Protective Services Proceedings,â€ were held in 2008. The quality and value of this training was of such significance that the funding source, the Governorâ€™s Task Force on Childrenâ€™s Justice, has scheduled repeat sessions for 2009. There is no charge to attend; registrations must be received by May 6 and August 1, respectively.
Attached below is the 2009 2nd quarter trainings (April - June) Wedgwood Christian Services is offering. Download the brochure for more information on these and many more trainings offered:

May 19: GANGS - KNOWLEDGE IS POWER (beginning)â€”Since Biblical times, criminal organizations that engage in secretive, antisocial and criminal behavior have disrupted everyday life. Gangs are not new, nor are the social ills associated with them. 2.5 approved CEs. Cost: $29
May 21: SUICIDE INTERVENTION WITH ADOLESCENTS (intermediate)â€”Suicide is a desperate act of self-destruction to alleviate something that appears unchangeable. For some, it's a way of finding "peace" and escape - for others, it becomes a way to protest and rage, a tool for empowerment. 3 approved CEs.
