February 2010Vol. 11, No. 1Website Offers Guidance on Public Child Welfare

Positioning Public Child Welfare Guidance (PPCWG) has launched a website that offers guidance in 14 critical areas of public child welfare. Each web section contains a definition of the critical area, an explanation of its importance in child welfare, questions and answers, and a systematic explanation of the guidance provided. Resources also are available and categorized in lists for each topic. The site supplies free downloadable files.

Currently, 7 of the 14 areas are loaded on the site—Strategy, Disparity and Disproportionality, Practice Model, Leadership, Workforce, Communications, and Change Management. Subjects to be added are Administrative Practices, Strategic Partnerships, Information Management, Public Policy, Budget and Finance, Research, and Technology.

PPCWG was developed by the National Association of Public Child Welfare Administrators and supported through a collaboration with Casey Family Programs.
