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

The Child Welfare Virtual Expo 2017 highlighted the critical importance of assessment and decision-making to enhancing outcomes for children and families. Sessions covered strategies for assessing safety, conducting comprehensive assessment of parents, collaborating across systems for families with co-occurring issues, and using data effectively. Engaging presentations featured insights from national subject matter experts, child welfare professionals and partners, parents, and youth.

Two sessions were tailored to managers and administrators, and two were designed for frontline workers. Each session included presentations and a virtual reflection activity to help participants apply presentation concepts to their daily work.

Continuing education units (CEUs) are available for those who attended the Child Welfare Virtual Expo 2017 on July 13.
