Description of Resource

"Part of the Family to Family Tools for Rebuilding Foster Care series. Child placement decisions are the most difficult decisions that an overwhelmed child welfare agency has to make. In order to address the challenges associated with placement, sites in Casey's Family to Family initiative have designed and tested a new approach called "team decisionmaking." This brief defines and portrays the benefits that team decisionmaking has on children and families involved with the child welfare system." - Publisher's description
