The three case studies written for this project reflect training needs in crucial parts of the child welfare system. They may be used individually or together, and each includes an introduction that highlights the area of child welfare practice that governs the situation, and a variety of classroom exercises. An effort was made to be ethnically sensitive by emphasizing language and cultural diversity differences in family lifestyles as expressed in parenting and disciplinary styles and varying cultural norms and values. The authors strongly recommend the use of collaborative teaching with guest speakers from local departments of Social Service, substance abuse programs, etc., to supplement the case studies.

Choices: A Child Welfare Curriculum Module on Voluntary Services and Court-Mandated Services
Conditions of Use:
Remix and Share
Rating

This module compares the relative effectiveness of court-mandated versus voluntary service plans in preventing child maltreatment recidivism and analyzes family characteristics that influence how families are recommended for court-mandated services. Results showed that the type of plan does not make a difference in case outcome; similar rates of recidivism were noted between both types of plans after the cases closed. Also, while children were more likely to remain in the home in families that received voluntary plans when other factors were controlled, the voluntary plan advantage disappeared.

An investigation narrative is written whenever a public child welfare agency is alerted to a situation requiring further attention. The narrative tells the story of what actions occurred as a social worker interacted with a family or child on their path to gather evidence surrounding a reported incident.

This interactive activity provides a learner with an example of an Investigation Narrative taken from a vignette. Buttons on the left side of the document highlight sections of the narrative template, identifying what information is typically included in that section and showing an excerpt taken from the vignette. The goal for the learner utilizing this resource is to identify the structure of an investigation narrative and be able to explain the purpose or function of the highlighted sections / headings.
