This one-day workshop provides a framework for supervisors to support use of the Child and Adolescent Needs and Strengths (CANS) in child welfare social work and children’s behavioral health practice within the Integrated Core Practice Model (ICPM). Important considerations regarding the social worker or clinician’s level of development and integrating CANS information in Child and Family Team (CFT) meetings and in working with children, youth and families are addressed. Hands-on activities will be used to illustrate supervision strategies along the ICPM phases of practice, teaming and coordinating care. Time will be provided for peer consultation and small group discussion of relevant issues that arise in supervising with the CANS.
Pre-requisite: Completion of the course The CAN: Overview, Case Planning and Preparation for Certification; certification on the CANS is highly recommended. This workshop is required for Child Welfare Supervisors who will be supporting staff who use the CANS in case planning. Supervisors who will not oversee case planning may take Module A, while supervisors who oversee the use of CANS in case planning must take Module B.
