Topic: Child Welfare Initiatives
Why was Child Welfare Initiatives chosen as a topic by the Advisory Committee? (Click for Answer)
Child Welfare initiatives was chosen by the Advisory Committee because the Adoption and Safe Families Act of 1997 requires public child welfare to track performance on established outcomes. California has built upon and expanded outcome measurement through state legislation known as AB 636. Emerging child welfare outcome statistics demonstrate the need for informed and effective practice by child welfare staff. The Child Welfare Initiatives provide best practice models that are likely to help public child welfare achieve better outcomes for children and families. Although there are differences in these models, each recognizes the critical need to engage families in making decisions about their children. A successful child welfare worker must develop skills to engage families and to work with them as partners, with the goals of safety, permanence, and well-being for each child.
