A STATES APPROACH TO CHANGE

A STATES APPROACH TO CHANGE

This podcast, developed in collaboration with the Child Welfare Information Gateway, shares an example of how one state changed its approach to staff development, as well as provides insight on the “must-haves” and lessons learned in moving away from isolated interventions and toward a targeted and cohesive strategy. We tell the story of how the Connecticut Department of Children and Families improve its workforce by: (1) using outcome data to identify the specific staff attributes and technical barriers to address; (2) engaging and receiving buy-in from partner agencies and organizations; and (3) applying implementation science and assistance from the National Child Welfare Workforce Institute to improve manager and supervisor leadership.
