2017 Theme: Strengthening Assessment and Decision-Making for Improved Outcomes

This year’s Virtual Expo highlights the critical importance of assessment and decision-making to enhancing outcomes for children and families. Sessions will cover strategies for assessing safety, conducting comprehensive assessment of parents, collaborating across systems for families with co-occurring issues, and using data effectively. Engaging presentations will feature insights from national subject matter experts, child welfare professionals and partners, parents, and youth.

Find sessions  that match your interests. Two sessions are tailored for managers and administrators, and two are designed for frontline workers. Each session includes presentations and a virtual reflection activity to help you apply presentation concepts to your daily work. To promote group learning and interaction, you are encouraged to gather with colleagues to watch, discuss, and begin planning for implementation of new ideas.

Between sessions, you can chat with presenters and other participants, or visit virtual exhibit booths to find out more about resources, tools, and initiatives.

Can’t make it on July 13th? All sessions will be recorded and later posted in CapLEARN, the Collaborative’s Learning Center.
