Southern Child Welfare Training Partnership University of Wisconsin - Madison

Greetings from the Program Director


We hope this website provides easy access to information about the professional development training we offer for public child welfare staff in our 21 counties in Southern Child Welfare Training Partnership and those in the other partnerships in the Wisconsin Child Welfare Professional Development System.

Our goal is to provide a learning environment that mirrors the same ideals of respect for the individual; a strength based focus; and belief in people's ability to learn and change that child welfare workers apply in their practice every day. We are committed to working collaboratively with our county partners and the Department of Children and Families to offer educational opportunities that enhance the skills of child welfare staff and assist them in helping children and families. Through these activities we help the University of Wisconsin to reach beyond the campus community and serve the citizens of our state.

We welcome your ideas on how we can better support you as a child welfare professional.

Erik Pritzl, MSSW, Director
