February 2008Vol. 9, No. 1Strengthening Child Welfare Supervision
The fall 2007 issue of Child Welfare Matters focuses on how agencies can support and strengthen the role of supervisors in child welfare. The lead article outlines key steps agencies can take to train and support supervisors, provides examples of these strategies, and notes some of the lessons learned about supervision from the first round of CFSRs. Other articles explain how the National Resource Centers can provide agencies with training and technical expertise in the area of supervision and discuss lessons learned about structured clinical supervision. A column on training system news makes its debut in this issue.
