The module is designed to provide the Indian Child Welfare (ICW) worker with an understanding of the importance of services which keep children with their own families and the role of these services in child protection. The topics discussed are current priorities in Indian child welfare. The goal of Module IV is to enhance the capability of the ICW worker to provide services to children in their own homes.
