A4 Aligning Teaming Models to Achieve Best Practice: CFT; SOP and TDM
Rating

In 2018; the landscape of services for children and families being served in California Child Welfare Services has continued to evolve. One recent evolution is the use of Child and Family Teams as a vehicle for team planning.

Two of the major practices to integrate with the CFT mandate include Safety Organized Practice (SOP) and Team Decision-Making (TDM) meetings. SOP is a collaborative practice approach that emphasizes the importance of teamwork in child welfare; and TDM is a facilitated team meeting structure to address placement issues for children involved or potentially involved in foster care. This workshop will focus on the promising practices and art of integrating SOP and TDM into a CFT process. Participants will leave with increased capacity to create one teaming process that meets the needs of the child; youth; NM D; parent; family agency and community.

Participants will learn how to manage and drive the results of meetings before they even begin. They will also get an opportunity to reflect on their own values; which may/may not impact their approach with their team and families. Facilitators will have a chance to reflect and recognize the type of facilitator they are and the need to be flexible depending on the results they want for a meeting. We will focus on facilitators in Wraparound and what it means to be outcome-based; by going over types of meeting goals. All of these goals are “results;” and we will help participants recognize when they are getting these results and how we see them in the Wraparound process.

C7 What About Dad??
Rating

How are fathers treated in your agency? Child welfare and juvenile probation are required to work with parents of children to create a safe environment for their children. Often; the work is done with the mother; and the efforts to engage the father fade away or are simply less. Does your agency do that? Are the children and youth you work with getting the benefit of their fathers? Is there an unspoken bias to prioritize moms? Hear from dads who have been in the system and are now working hard to make sure agencies are attuned to the needs of fathers. Go dads!
