Dec. 6 Webinar: Promoting Research-Practice Partnerships in Child Welfare

Posted November 11, 2018, By the Annie E. Casey Foundation

Leading with evidence and informing practice with research

The Annie E. Casey Foun­da­tion and the William T. Grant Foun­da­tion are host­ing a Dec. 6 webi­nar devot­ed to build­ing effec­tive part­ner­ships between researchers and child wel­fare prac­ti­tion­ers. Such part­ner­ships can play an impor­tant role in sup­port­ing the imple­men­ta­tion of the Fam­i­ly First Pre­ven­tion Ser­vices Act, which ties fed­er­al fund­ing to the use of research and evi­dence-based programs.

Dur­ing the session:

  • Scott Bur­dick, deputy direc­tor of the Depart­ment of Chil­dren and Fam­i­ly Ser­vices for the Orange Coun­ty (Cal­i­for­nia) Social Ser­vices Agency, will share lessons learned from his expe­ri­ences work­ing with inter­nal research part­ners to improve the agency’s deliv­ery of services.
  • Andrew White, deputy com­mis­sion­er of the Divi­sion of Pol­i­cy, Plan­ning and Mea­sure­ment at New York City’s Admin­is­tra­tion for Children’s Ser­vices, and Kristin Bernard, an assis­tant pro­fes­sor of psy­chol­o­gy at Stony Brook Uni­ver­si­ty, will describe their expe­ri­ences work­ing togeth­er to imple­ment and eval­u­ate an evi­dence-based mod­el for youth in fos­ter care.
  • Par­tic­i­pants will explore the Grant Foundation’s microsite of resources on struc­tur­ing and car­ry­ing out research-prac­tice partnerships.

This is the final webi­nar in a four-part series called Lead­ing With Evi­dence: Inform­ing Prac­tice With Research, which exam­ines how child wel­fare lead­ers can work with devel­op­ers and researchers to fol­low proven pro­gram mod­els with an end goal of improv­ing out­comes for young people.

Pre­vi­ous webi­na­rs in the series have high­light­ed part­ner­ships between devel­op­ers and child wel­fare lead­ers, ways to finance evi­dence-based pro­grams using the Fam­i­ly First Act and how to use the Hexa­gon tool for assess­ing pro­grams to imple­ment.
