Safe Babies Court: From Implementation to Evaluation (An Approach for Children Birth to Three Years of Age in Dependency Court)
Webinar recorded on January 22, 2020
Children from birth to three years of age constitute over 40% of the out-of-home care population in Arizona. Maricopa County, the largest county in the state, implemented Court Teams for Infants and Toddlers (a program of ZERO TO THREE) in 2011. This 90-minute webinar focuses on adaptation and implementation of the 12 core components, and presents the results of an eight-year longitudinal evaluation utilizing a comparison group design. Outcomes include type of permanency, time to permanency, re-report and re-entry, as well as sub-analyses by race. The approach is dually focused—evolution of community capacity to support the youngest children and families, and a focus on the family.
