Policies and procedures are never enough. Before founding thinkLaw, our Founder and CEO Colin Seale had a multitude of experience when it comes to advocating and speaking on child welfare issues. As an educator, an analyst at the largest child welfare agency in Nevada, and as an attorney to foster children, Colin is especially appreciative of the challenges of child welfare leadership and is excited for the opportunity to work with leaders at the Child Welfare Workforce Development Services Conference 2020.
Join Colin’s session “Gray Is The New Black: Using Critical Thinking To Navigate Uncertainty”, where Colin will be helping leaders from the Southern California Child Welfare System use the “Thinking Like a Lawyer” framework to 1) Develop a working understanding of why critical thinking is challenging to teach, especially for leaders & 2) Learn and practice several powerful inquiry strategies to enhance critical thinking and leadership in the challenging context of child welfare.
