December/January 2015Vol. 15, No. 11New Family Engagement Inventory

In December 2014, Child Welfare Information Gateway launched the Family Engagement Inventory (FEI), an innovative, web-based tool for child welfare, juvenile justice, behavioral health, and education professionals. The FEI will help practitioners, managers, and system leaders understand how family engagement is defined and implemented across their various fields of practice and support collaboration among the multiple systems that often work with the same families.

Readers can access a synthesis with information on how the FEI was researched, collected, and synthesized, or explore the common benefits, themes, and strategies of family engagement across disciplines. The FEI is a microsite accessible through the Child Welfare Information Gateway website at
