Hear directly from child welfare leaders as they share their experiences with prevention planning. These six brief video excerpts from a prevention planning roundtable conversation highlight successful strategies, lessons learned, and advice for states developing and implementing prevention plans.
Use the unique reflection and discussion questions paired with each video to facilitate a team discussion about how the stories shared might influence your prevention planning approach.
Consider using the Building Capacity to Address Common Challenges planning tool alongside the videos as your team works together to identify next steps in bringing your prevention plan to life.
