This bulletin for professionals explores concurrent planning, which is an approach that seeks to reduce the amount of time children spend in foster care by considering all reasonable permanency options the moment a child enters the system. The bulletin explores concurrent planning research and practice, the role of the courts, and assessing for family reunification probability. Caseworker training and examples from the field also are provided.
