What Do ALC Sessions Include?

ALCs demonstrate our value for workforce support that includes:

  • Training
  • Technical Assistance
  • Team Work
  • Sensitivity to Secondary Trauma

Sessions include something for everyone, no matter what your learning style is!

A trained facilitator structures the daylong session to draw out participants’ knowledge of Wisconsin statutes and standards and support participants’ critical thinking skills.

What Do ALC Sessions Accomplish?

Sessions:

  • Build community within and between counties
  • Increase our common understanding of how child welfare practice is experienced by staff and families in Wisconsin.
  • Provide a unique learning opportunity to build a broader perspective outside of the local agency

What's Unique about ALCs?

There are unique aspects that make them different from other trainings offered through WCWPDS:

  • Local child welfare agencies send teams, including at least one supervisor
  • Training curriculum is selected and developed in response to statewide practice data analyzed through Wisconsin’s Continuous Quality Improvement processes, including Systems Change Review
  • Cases are real and consultation and coaching is offered to support case practice

Due to COVID-19 the 2020 ALC series on Access has been cancelled. Instead the 2020 series is on Virtual Contacts.
