CFSR Factsheet for Youth
The Children's Bureau created a short factsheet that explains to youth what the Child and Family Services Reviews (CFSRs) are, how it affects them, and how they may be involved. It also calls particular attention to the two types of interviews youth may be involved in during a review:
- Case-related interviews, in which their individual cases are selected and they speak with someone about their experience
- Stakeholder interviews, in which they may have the opportunity to participate in a group interview
This factsheet offers sample questions to help youth prepare for their involvement, such as those about if they felt safe and what kind of services were provided or worked well. Child welfare professionals can use this factsheet to help guide conversations with youth who are involved with CFSRs.
