Dec/Jan 2003Vol. 3, No. 10New Publication Takes Readers Beyond Collaboration to Results
A new book, Beyond Collaboration to Results, looks at the current environment of children's services in terms of how to improve programs and increase the resources available to children and families. The book includes three chapters on outcomes development and results-based accountability. Other chapters detail new roles for advocacy organizations, guidelines from technical assistance providers, and the need to develop new roles for community organizations, leaders, and parents in systems reform. The appendix to the book contains a set of tools for self-assessment of collaboratives' performance in achieving systems reform.
Beyond Collaboration to Results was written by Sid Gardner, M.P.A., president of Child and Family Futures and director of the Center for Collaboration for Children at California State University, Fullerton.
The book is available for $18.95 (including shipping and handling) from the Arizona Prevention Resource Center.
