Children's Institute, Inc.: Training and Conferences

Training and Conferences

CII plays a leading role in informing and equipping child welfare professionals in many disciplines with knowledge and techniques they need to provide optimum services to children and families in their communities. From postgraduate internships to small-group workshops to national conferences, CII offers a wealth of learning opportunities that keep professionals abreast of timely issues and at the cutting edge of their field.

Continuing Education Units are offered for most CII trainings. Check specific event registration information for details. Children’s Institute, Inc. controls the content and presentations of all Continuing Education activities. All educational activities must be free of commercial bias for or against any product, and the conference-related educational materials, including a speaker’s presentation, must not advance the proprietary interests of a financial supporter or proprietary company. This policy provides definitions and instances of potential conflicts of interest and describes the controls in place to prevent such conflicts of interest.

Training participants will be strongly encouraged to provide candid feedback about their training experiences. If complaints emerge during this evaluation process or during any phase of the training, the follow steps will be taken: the participant will be given the opportunity to meet privately with the training staff onsite. If the participant requests in writing and should it be necessary, he/she will be given a full or partial refund of training fees, or credit for subsequent training/workshops. A copy of the written procedure will be provided upon request.
