  • 2017 Court Improvement Program (CIP) Indian Child Welfare Act: New Regulations

    Free Recorded Webcast (July 25, 2017)

    Course Description: The Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA) was passed in 1978 after two years of Congressional hearings determined that Native children were being removed from their families and communities at disproportionately high rates. Since passage, courts around the country have struggled to understand the intent of the law and inconsistent implementation has left many individuals and families feeling frustrated and unable to trust the system. Many workers assigned to ICWA cases have felt similar frustration as terms like “active efforts” and “good cause” have not been adequately defined. In December 2016, federal regulations went into effect adding new requirements for judges. These are the first legally-binding changes since the law was passed.
