22nd Annual Child Abuse and Neglect Institute



Monday 11th of June 2018 - Friday 15th of June 2018


The Child Abuse and Neglect Institute (CANI) was created in 1996 to provide training in dependency court best practices for judicial officers. This week-long program brings together national and local faculty to teach on core topics including hearing practice, child development, substance abuse, and cutting-edge court improvement developments, among other topics. Offered as a highly interactive in-residence training program, CANI is aimed at judges who have been newly assigned to child abuse and neglect/dependency cases, or judges who have been presiding over these cases for some time and who want the latest information about best practice in this area. CANI affords judges an opportunity to share their bench experiences and practice skills, as well as develop long-lasting collegial relationships, which support information-sharing well after participants have graduated from CANI. 

This week-long program will bring together local and national faculty to teach on core topics including:

-Individualized child welfare

-Important Federal laws and regulations

-Domestic violence and reasonable efforts in dependency cases

-Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA) and state-tribal collaboration

-Substance abuse and permanency planning

-Attachment and bonding

-Medical issues in child abuse and neglect

-Implementation of the new Enhanced Resource Guidelines

Each day is a full day, typically 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., except for Friday, which concludes at 11:30 a.m. Please note that CANI is most effective when participants attend every day. If you are unable to attend the full program, please contact us to discuss future CANI opportunities.
