Child welfare agencies continually strive to achieve better outcomes by developing, implementing, and evaluating practices and programs. A theory of change is a valuable tool that child welfare agencies can use to illustrate the pathway from where they are now to where they would like to be. This workbook and video series are part of a collection of resources designed to help agencies use a theory of change to achieve stakeholder buy-in about what needs to happen to achieve shared goals, select the right intervention, guide strategic planning, and inform evaluation and continuous improvement. Use this workbook to further your understanding of concepts and prepare to move learning into action with your team.
