This three-part webinar will explain the Child Protective Services process from referral to completion. Participants will be able to identify the players involved in a CPS case and their function. Participants will also examine possible cross-over cases and the challenges that they could present. There will also be discussions/activities focusing on where in the CPS process legal interpreters should be utilized, and what additional skills a court interpreter needs to possess before accepting a court assignment involving CPS. Professional knowledge and experience will be supplemented with the presenter’s personal experience as a foster and an adoptive parent.

She and her husband and their 3 boys were foster parents for 8 years, and have adopted 3 beautiful Deaf daughters. Since becoming a foster/adoptive parent, she has recognized the need for more education in the interpreting field related to Child Protective Services (CPS) and working with children who have experienced trauma.
