Leveraging Research-Practice Partnerships to Support the Work of Child Welfare Agencies

Posted January 3, 2019, By the Annie E. Casey Foundation

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.
