Learn about the importance of successful collaboration and engagement for implementing prevention-focused systems.
In this video, part of the Strengthening Families Through Prevention and Collaboration: Child Welfare Virtual Expo (CWVE) 2020 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 CWVE 2020 Discussion Guide, which provides tailored information and activities for child welfare staff and collaborative partners.
