Prevention Planning Roundtable: Communicating With Partners About Prevention

The Capacity Building Center (CBC) for States developed the Prevention Planning Roundtable series of discussions that aim to support agencies and other child welfare stakeholders in their efforts to build a common understanding of prevention through intentional communication based on authentic partnerships as well as to define the role of the child welfare system in strengthening families and communities. These discussions are part of the CBC for State's Prevention Planning Into Action suite of prevention-focused resources.

One of the videos in this series, "Prevention Planning Roundtable: Communicating With Partners About Prevention," features six brief videos that highlight roundtable conversations with leaders from Kentucky, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, and Washington as they discuss successful communications approaches and how they build partnerships and collaborate with other stakeholders in the development and implementation of prevention plans. In addition, the video's webpage provides the following discussion prompts based on this and previous roundtable discussions:

  • What kinds of communication strategies could help foster trust and transparency in our planning process?  
  • What are some structures we have in place to support prevention communications? What do we need to build?  
  • Whom can we bring to the table to help shape our prevention communication plan?  
The video can be paired with the Building Capacity to Address Common Challenges planning tool to explore strategies on how to communicate with partners about prevention.
