Partnering and futuring for the child welfare system
Partnering and futuring are two key concepts leading to the development of a five-volume policy and practice compendium on the child welfare system by Ohio States College of Social Work and the Child Welfare League of America (CWLA). Ramona Denby-Brinson, professor and associate dean of academic affairs, and Amanda Klein-Cox, senior research associate, are collaborating with Charlene Ingram from the CWLA on the project. The team published an article in Childrens Voice (Volume 29, #2) describing their plans and methods for the compendium, which will reflect state-of-the-art knowledge pertaining to child- and family-serving systems.Learn More
