A new webi­nar record­ing explores how part­ner­ships between researchers and child wel­fare pro­fes­sion­als can be a valu­able resource for agen­cies serv­ing kids and families.

The 60-minute ses­sion, host­ed by the Annie E. Casey and William T. Grant foun­da­tions, focus­es on build­ing research-prac­tice part­ner­ships that sup­port the efforts of child wel­fare agen­cies. These long term, mutu­al­ly ben­e­fi­cial part­ner­ships shape how research is pro­duced and used, with an empha­sis on pre­ven­tion prac­tices and evi­dence-based treat­ment interventions.

Dur­ing the ses­sion, Tools and Resources for Research-Prac­tice Part­ner­ships, view­ers will hear from:

  • Kim­ber­ly DuMont, the session’s mod­er­a­tor and a senior pro­gram offi­cer with the William T. Grant Foundation;
  • Scott Bur­dick, deputy direc­tor of the Depart­ment of Chil­dren and Fam­i­ly Ser­vices for the Orange Coun­ty (Cal­i­for­nia) Social Ser­vices Agency;
  • Andrew White, deputy com­mis­sion­er of the Divi­sion of Pol­i­cy, Plan­ning and Mea­sure­ment for the New York City Admin­is­tra­tion for Children’s Ser­vices; and
  • Kristin Bernard, an assis­tant pro­fes­sor of psy­chol­o­gy at Stony Brook University.
