August 2012Vol. 13, No. 7Spotlight on Practice Models

This month, CBX looks at practice models through the lens of implementation. Practice models vary by State or Tribe and are tailored to reflect the unique approach to child welfare that best serves the jurisdiction's children, families, and communities. Model implementation also varies in terms of size and scope. We examine the readiness, fidelity, evaluation, and sustainability issues in three practice model implementation projects in NH, OK, and WV.
