Child Safety: What Does the Evidence Support? (Seminar F)
The Federally mandated Child and Family Service Reviews (CFSRs) focus attention on accountability within public child welfare agencies. CFSRs also affect the private child welfare agencies that are contracted to provide services for children and families. The programs and services agencies provide can influence the score a State receives on the Federal review. Both public and private agencies need to prove that their services and programs promote safety for children. This seminar is designed to help child welfare agencies improve safety practice by sharing programs and practices that are associated with positive outcomes and appropriate for exploration, adaptation, or replication. Evidence-based programs and practices will be highlighted, and participants will be introduced to the Research to Practice (R2P) Readiness for Program and Practice Change assessment tool. The seminar will be particularly relevant for agencies affected by Federal mandates and interested in implementing evidence-based practices. Participants will be provided materials designed to engage them in conversation with the presenters and each other.
