An In-Depth Examination of State Compliance with the Indian Child Welfare Act (Workshop 126)
Sparse empirical research has investigated the practical impact of the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA), despite the fact that it was enacted more than two decades ago and lauded as one of the most significant pieces of Federal legislation affecting Indian families. This workshop examines compliance with the provisions of ICWA in Arizona in one of the most comprehensive analyses to date. The session offers practitioners and policymakers evaluative tools to measure and improve state compliance with ICWA, thereby improving services to American Indian children and their families.
