Online training that's convenient.
The training, which is designed to assist managers and supervisors in meeting the challenges of complying with the Adoption and Safe Families Act, is organized into three interrelated content sections:
* an examination of ASFA and other relevant legislation pertaining to child welfare and its practice implications,
* the use of data and outcomes measurement for program improvement, and
* best and promising practices for results.
Topics for training modules include child welfare policy over the last 30 years, making sense of measurement, effective reports, a proactive approach to managing with data, and a results-oriented culture.
With funding from a grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the training site is managed by the University of Kansas' School of Social Welfare and the Oklahoma Department of Human Services Division of Children and Family Services. The training is open-ended and participants may take it at any time. The site keeps track of the modules as participants finish them. Participants receive a certificate of completion and continuing education credits under certain circumstances.
