Subject:National Center for Evidence-Based Practice in Child Welfare seeking request for applications

The Children’s Bureau recently awarded a cooperative agreement for the National Center for Evidence-Based Practice in Child Welfare to the University of Maryland, School of Social Work, Ruth H. Young Center for Families and Children. The goal of this 5-year project is to provide opportunities for local jurisdictions to have a coordinated and supported strategy to effectively and collaboratively address the emotional and behavioral needs of children, youth, and families served in the child welfare system. We’ve heard from many jurisdictions that there is often room to improve the way children, youth and families in the child welfare system experience support for their mental health needs. Many jurisdictions express a desire for better communication and collaboration between mental health and child welfare agencies. We also know that many areas struggle with finding resources to ensure that the best and most effective treatments are readily available. Partnering for Success is designed for just this. The Center has created Partnering for Success, an integrated, sustainable, cross-systems workforce competency model, designed to improve mental health outcomes for child welfare-involved children and youth. Partnering with agencies from selected jurisdictions, the Center aims to build the capacity of the public child welfare and mental health frontline workforce, as well as leadership from both systems, to implement trauma-informed, evidence-based practices. Partnering for Success is a multiphase intervention for child welfare and mental health professionals alike. We begin with engagement, self-assessment, and preparatory activities with a leadership team to provide the support necessary to ensure effective implementation. Next we feature comprehensive online and in-person learning followed by clinical and practice consultations. Tailored technical assistance will be available to all participating jurisdictions. Child welfare and mental health professionals and leadership from both systems will participate in specialized learning experiences that utilize a range of learning methods, modes of delivery, and field practice applications with ongoing consultation. Content for the child welfare and mental health professionals learning track is based on the CBT+ model, designed and evaluated in Washington State. CBT+ integrates a suite of publically available evidence-based approaches to treating anxiety, depression, conduct problems, trauma and includes a parent education component. The Request for Applications (RFA) will be issued in late June and posted on our website. An informational webinar will be held in mid-July 2014. Child welfare systems in states, tribes, and the District of Columbia are invited to apply jointly with their State public mental health system (child and adolescent division). Implementing sites can be a single city or region. The RFA will provide in-depth information about organizational support for sites, content for the integrated learning tracks, participant expectations, and site selection processes. A FAQ page will be posted and updated on our website. http://www.ncebpcw.org/ PLEASE CONTACT Project Director, Leslie Rozeff, at lrozeff @ssw.umaryland.edu with any questions and visit our website at http://www.ncebpcw.org/ National Center for Evidence-Based Practice in Child Welfare A Service of the Children’s Bureau 525 West Redwood Street | Baltimore, MD 21201 | http://www.ncebpcw.org/
