As part of California's Integrated Core Practice Model (ICPM), the Child and Adolescent Needs and Strengths (CANS) serves as the functional assessment tool to be used with the child and family team (CFT) process to guide case planning and placement decisions. This page serves as an access point to CANS, CFT and CPM/ICPM training and resources for Northern California counties.
