Race and Equity in Child and Family Serving Systems - June 2020
The presenter, Brenda J. Allen (PhD, Professor Emerita) is a former Chief Diversity Officer (University of Colorado Denver and Anschutz Medical Campus) and author of Difference Matters: Communicating Social Identity. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the need to focus on race and equity in child and family serving systems has been magnified. As employees within those systems strive to address that need, they also must adjust their ways of working. This webinar focuses on ways that employees can cultivate equity and inclusion among themselves, in order to better serve children and families. The importance of equity and inclusion to child- and family- serving systems and workers is discussed. Dr. Allen explores how race and equity matter in the workplace (in-person and virtually). She shares strategies for how workers can better support one another by being more equity-minded.

Minding the Implementation Gap: Variability in Fidelity Measurement and Pre-implementation Supports within Evidence-Based Psychosocial Treatments - May 2020
The presenter, Cricket Mitchell, PhD, is a clinical research psychologist with 15 years of experience as a research, evaluation, and implementation consultant. Evidence-based psychosocial treatments are heavily featured in recent legislation, including the Family First Prevention Services Act of 2018. While proliferation of such interventions holds promise for improving behavioral health, there is a well-documented 'voltage drop' in effectiveness once interventions are transported outside of research studies. Further, many implementation efforts fail altogether. Using programs rated by the CEBC, this presentation explores the extent to which program purveyors leverage implementation science to support implementation efforts.
