CFSR Training and Technical Assistance

As States plan for the second round of the Child and Family Services Reviews (CFSRs), they can draw on a new suite of training and technical assistance materials, courtesy of the National Child Welfare Resource Center for Organizational Improvement (NRCOI) and other Children's Bureau National Resource Centers. The materials are designed to help State agencies prepare for the CFSRs, enhance their leadership and management capacity, and improve outcomes. Seven training modules are available, including five to aid in planning and two to be used during the CFSR process:

  • Leading systemic change
  • Strategic planning
  • Strengthening supervision
  • Engaging community stakeholders, including the courts and legal system, State-Tribal partnerships, and family caregivers and youth
  • Using information and data
  • CFSR kickoff
  • Program improvement planning

Modules include a synopsis, facilitator guide, participant workbook, and PowerPoint presentation. NRCOI staff are available to help States customize the materials and work with State agencies, once the agencies have received approval from their Regional Office.

The CFSR Training and Technical Assistance Package is available on the NRCOI website:
