August/September 2002Vol. 3, No. 7OJJDP Issues Program Announcement for Multi-System Decision-Making Training and Technical Assistance
The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) has issued a Program Announcement for the Multi-System Decision-Making Training and Technical Assistance Project to build capacity in communities--initially and primarily Safe Start initiative communities--to collaboratively conduct a comprehensive, data-driven, decision-making model for improving services and systems of agencies serving children exposed to violence and their families.
This project will provide direct and intensive training and technical assistance to help communities conduct multi-system case analysis and develop structured decision-making tools to inform their systems improvement. Agencies supported in this model are those systems working with children who have been victims of maltreatment or who have witnessed adult violence in the home, the perpetrators of their victimization, and their families. The agencies include law enforcement, courts, domestic violence service providers, child protective services, mental health providers, and medical systems.
