The Continuum of Care Reform (CCR) draws together existing and new reforms to California’s child welfare services program. It is designed from an understanding that children who must live apart from their biological parents do best when they are cared for in committed, nurturing family homes. Also known as AB 403, CCR provides the statutory and policy framework to ensure that services and supports for the children or youth and their families are tailored toward the ultimate goal of maintaining a stable permanent family.

USING THE CHILD AND ADOLESCENT NEEDS AND STRENGTHS IN THE CALIFORNIA INTEGRATED CORE PRACTICE MODEL
This one-day training gives participants an understanding of how California will use the Child and Adolescent Needs and Strengths (CANS) as a strategy to meet the Integrated Core Practice Model (ICPM) vision for creating behavioral objectives with families and teams. The ICPM articulates the shared values, core components, and standards of practice reflecting findings of current research that demonstrate how collaborative and integrated family services work best in meeting the complex needs of children, youth, non-minor dependents, and families involved with multiple, government-funded organizations.
The CANS is a multi-purpose tool designed to be the output of a collaborative assessment process. It supports care planning and decision-making, facilitates quality improvement initiatives, and allows for the monitoring of outcomes and services.
Using vignettes and small group activities, this 6-hour, interactive session will prepare users for certification and use of the CANS. Principles and best practices in using the CANS as an assessment strategy and tool to monitor outcomes and inform plans will be addressed.
