A new Annie E. Casey Foun­da­tion webi­nar intro­duces juve­nile jus­tice agen­cies and their part­ners to fam­i­ly-engaged case plan­ning in youth probation.

The hour-long record­ing, enti­tled Fam­i­ly-Engaged Case Plan­ning in Youth Pro­ba­tion, fea­tures a new mod­el for the ini­tial stage of the juve­nile pro­ba­tion process — when juve­nile pro­ba­tion offi­cers for­mu­late case plans in close col­lab­o­ra­tion with young peo­ple and their families. 

This approach, and the Foundation’s larg­er vision for trans­form­ing juve­nile pro­ba­tion, is nec­es­sary to align pro­ba­tion with what research shows about youth devel­op­ment and what works to sup­port growth and long-term behav­ior change in young people. 

Dur­ing the webi­nar, pre­sen­ters cov­er the def­i­n­i­tion of fam­i­ly-engaged case plan­ning, why it is nec­es­sary to trans­form pro­ba­tion and how it departs from stan­dard juve­nile pro­ba­tion prac­tice. Speak­ers high­light con­tent in Casey’s 2022 prac­tice guide on this new mod­el for the ini­tial stage of the juve­nile pro­ba­tion process.
