Subject:QIC-AG Webinar 9-27-16: Child Welfare's Responsibility to Promote Child and Family Well-Being Post Permanence: The Need to Create a Robust Permanency Continuum Framework

Child Welfare's Responsibility to Promote Child and Family Well-Being Post Permanence: The Need to Create a Robust Permanency Continuum Framework ________________________________ Meeting Description: The National Quality Improvement Center for Adoption/Guardianship Support and Preservation (QIC-AG) is committed to learning what services and supports—when provided at the right time and intensity for a family’s level of need—will promote family preservation and prevent discontinuity. To guide this work, the QIC-AG developed a Permanency Continuum Framework. The Framework is built on the premise that children in adoptive or guardianship families fare better when their families are fully prepared and supported to address issues as they arise, before any issue escalates into a crisis. The Framework is arranged into eight intervals, beginning with pre-permanence and continuing to post-permanence needs. This webinar will provide an overview of the Framework and how the eight QIC-AG partner sites utilize it to assess their system of care. Through the use of a video, participants will obtain a detailed explanation of each interval in the Framework; including the target population and practice principles, as well as the interventions chosen by each site. Two of the QIC-AG’s partner sites will highlight how the Framework helped them to assess their continuum of services and ultimately determine the interval to focus for their site’s evaluable intervention. Participants will also hear an adoptive parent’s perspective on the factors that are essential in creating a system of care that promotes child and family well-being pre and post permanence. Discussion will focus on how the framework can be used as a tool to guide the work of other sites to help develop a service continuum that will support children and families as they transition from foster care to adoption or guardianship, and then help families maintain stability and well-being after adoption or guardianship has been achieved. or click here to register Details Date: Tue, Sep 27, 2016 Time: 01:00 PM EDT Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes Host(s): National Quality Improvement Center for Adoption/Guardianship Support and Preservation Presenter Information Melinda Lis, MA Director, National Quality Improvement Center for Adoption/Guardianship Support and Preservation ________________________________ Barbara Joyal, MSW, LICSW System of Care Unit Director Family Services Division Department for Children and Families State of Vermont ________________________________ Elizabeth Richmond Adoptive Parent Co-Chair Illinois Adoption Advisory Council Lead Foster Parent Support Specialist- IL DCFS ________________________________ John Webb, MA Site Implementation Manager New Jersey Department of Children and Families
