In this video, which is part of the 2020 Child Welfare Virtual Expo Learning Experience, child welfare leaders and community partners discuss the importance of effective engagement and partnership for implementing prevention-focused systems. Presentations focus on developing an agency culture that supports prevention to successfully implement Family First Prevention Services Act provisions and build a prevention continuum, as well as strategies for building a prevention-focused agency culture and climate while simultaneously working on collaboratively spreading the vision for prevention beyond the borders of child welfare agencies and into the community.
Use this video with the Child Welfare Virtual Expo 2020 Discussion Guide, which provides information and activities for each topic, including a description of the topic, reflection questions tailored to the topic, and team activities for child welfare staff and collaborative partners.
