First Nation Child and Family Caring Society Summer 2008 Newsletter
Consider attending our upcoming knowledge conference entitled Caring across the Boundaries: Bridging Knowledge Gaps, Services and Policies to Support First Peoples Child Welfare and Health. This two and half day knowledge conference will address information gaps affecting child welfare and health services, practices and policies to First Peoples children, families and communities dealing with disabilities and special needs, FASD, mental health and addiction needs in the care of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal child welfare agencies. This two and ½ day event will be held in the spring of 2008 with special invitation to various scholars, practitioners, as well as professional and community experts in the both the child welfare and health fields from across Canada who can shed light on the need to collaborate on understanding how to address and provide solutions for closing the gaps in knowledge, services and policies across these two fields. Presenters will prepare papers based on their knowledge and research for publication in the December 2008 issue of the First Peoples Child & Family Review online journal. Printed copies of the journal along with a video CD of this event will be widely disseminated to all conference participants including distribution to Aboriginal CFS agencies, universities and other health and non-profit organizations across Canada to ensure knowledge transmission on the issues highlighted in this knowledge conference.
