Subject:RE: question about Differential Response in child welfare

Here is the map that Kai references on the number of States (to our knowledge) that are implementing, considering implementation or have discontinued the implementation of DR. http://www.ucdenver.edu/academics/colleges/medicalschool/departments/pediatrics/subs/can/DR/qicdr/Documents/DR%20Map.pdf A previous post inquired about the reason certain States ceased implementation. The best knowledge the QIC-DR has on that specific question can be found in the following report (see page 5). We’ll be posting another document in the near future which will give some additional detail about the history and rationale of the decision to discontinue. http://www.ucdenver.edu/academics/colleges/medicalschool/departments/pediatrics/subs/can/DR/qicdr/General%20Resources/QIC-DR_Lit_Review%20version%20%202.pdf Lisa Merkel-Holguin, MSW Assistant Professor | Department of Pediatrics Kempe Center for the Prevention and Treatment of Child Abuse & Neglect University of Colorado School of Medicine The Gary Pavilion at Children’s Hospital Colorado | Anschutz Medical Campus 13123 East 16th Avenue, B390 | Aurora, CO 80045 Phone: (303) 864-5211 | Fax: (303) 864-5367 lisa.merkel-holguin@childrenscolorado.org From: bounce-70635175-43189615@list.cornell.edu [mailto:bounce-70635175-43189615@list.cornell.edu] On Behalf Of Kai Guterman Sent: Monday, November 05, 2012 4:53 PM To: Child Maltreatment Researchers; child-maltreatment-research-l@cornell.edu Subject: RE: question about Differential Response in child welfare Hi Kim, I recently put together a report on DR implementation efforts around the US, which can be found here: http://www.casey.org/resources/publications/DifferentialResponseReport.htm Information included in this report was collected from a review of publicly available information as well as interviews/information gathering directly from jurisdictions. This report also describes some of the states that have discontinued DR and the barriers they encountered. Alan Puckett and I will be presenting this report at the annual DR conference in Henderson, NV next week. QIC-DR regularly updates a map on DR implementation around the US, and according to this map (updated as of 10/31/12): * 16 states have implemented DR on a statewide basis o HI, WY, MN, MO, OK, IL, LA, KY, TN, NC, VA, PA, CT, MA, VT, ME * 5 states have implemented county/ regional DR initiatives o NV, CO, WI, OH, NY * 12 states are either planning or considering DR o WA, OR, ID, UT, AZ, NE, TX, AR, GA, FL, MD, DE * 6 states have implemented a DR-like system, but does not officially meet AHA’s definition. o CA, NM, ND, SD, IA, NJ Let me know if you have any questions, I’m happy to share all of the info I have.

Four states discontinued DR: AZ, WV, TX, AK and FL but Florida then implemented a regional local pilot project. I'd love to learn more about why those states discontinued Differential Response. Does anyone have information about that? Kate Piper Kathryn A.
