Strengthening Child Protection Systems and Service Changes That Shape and Promote Best Practice (Workshop 81)
Presenters introduce a groundbreaking Parent Leadership Training model, which focuses on strengthening child protection systems by promoting and implementing the principles of parent leadership as a critical element in successful system change. The seminar showcases the success of the project in one county Child Protection Department, including: the process of establishing a Parent Leadership Task Force composed of parents, administrators, and frontline social workers; strategies to support parents within the child protection system; and ways that child protection staff effectively partner with parents. Lastly, the session addresses how this initiative is creating a Statewide model for system reform through parent leadership, contributing significantly to the overall goal of strengthening child protection systems.
