Conditions of Use:

Rating

At what chronological points during the life of a case might a child welfare social worker need to draft case notes, investigation narratives, case plans or court reports? This vignette timeline depicts when the four core documents were written for a particular case vignette. It begins at the point of the initial referral and proceeds through the first several months of Child / Family - Agency interaction thereafter, from promotion of the referral to the opening of a case. The purpose of this exercise is to demonstrate the non-linear relationship between the four core documents and illustrate the purpose of each document in the cycle of a family's interaction with a child welfare social worker / agency, given the circumstances presented in a vignette.

Click on objects in the graphic to explore more details about the events occurring during the case. Throughout the case you will also see what documents were used to record details of the events. Several of the events along the timeline contain links to the vignette documents. Additional resources can be accessed by clicking on the "resources" link above the top right corner of the graphic.
