This half-day training builds on the knowledge and skills learned in the Behaviorally Based Case Plan training. Child and Family Teaming (CFT), including CFT meetings, are a California state mandate under Continuum of Care Reform (CCR), and must occur to develop the case plan when children are placed in foster care. This course will focus on how to incorporate CFT requirements with Safety Organized Practice (SOP) and provide a model for team meetings that can be utilized across all stages of child welfare work, from emergency response to family maintenance/family reunification to permanency planning and cases with non-minor dependents.
After attending this training, participants will be able to:
- Understand the alignment of Safety Organized Practice and Child and Family Teaming
- Incorporate CFT requirements into SOP family team meetings
- Use the SOP CFT meeting guides to structure family team meetings across all service components in child welfare
- Ensure case plans address the child’s behavioral health, placement, educational and other needs while in care
Participants will learn strategies to engage families and their networks to facilitate development of plans that are customized, behavior-focused and family-centered.
