The most critical placement decisions that child welfare agencies make are sometimes executed by its newest and least experienced staff. Many times the social worker is overworked, undertrained, and relatively isolated. Therefore, it is very important that social work staff and other Team Decision Making (TDM) participants make the best decisions on behalf of children. The same social worker is often considering the future of many other families with similar placement decisions. The worker completes a risk assessment tool, consults with their supervisor, and makes a decision about whether to remove a child based on the information gathered. These decisions are vitally important and should not be considered lightly. TDM is a method for bringing interested and vested parties together to make better decisions, which ultimately should impact placement and permanency in child welfare.

This resource provides an overview of TDM and details a process of implementing the practice within a child welfare organization. It contains a set of practical tools, which can be used together or separately, to help implementers systematically execute and evaluate the new practice, program, or intervention. Toolkits can be tailored to meet stakeholder needs based on the parameters of their projects.
