Parallel Play is Not Collaboration: A Discussion of the Importance of Interest-Focused System Improvement Planning (Workshop 145)
Collaboration does not come naturally to systems. It can be achieved only through focused effort and dedication of stakeholders to the process. Parallel play is a child development concept that serves well as a metaphor for the processes often used in child welfare system reform and improvement. To strengthen processes and improve systems, stakeholders must grow beyond parallel play. This workshop discusses these concepts in the context of the Utah child welfare system.
