Title: The Family Development Matrix for In-Home Services
Date: Thursday, June 20, 2013
Time: 2:00 - 3:30 PM EDT
The Family Development Matrix (FDM) is a case management system and outcomes measurement tool. FDM is especially appropriate, but not exclusive, for use with families that are referred for risk of child abuse and/or neglect. For public child welfare agencies using a Differential or Alternative Response model, FDM data can help the agency and its community partners develop and track shared outcomes.
Join us for the webinar on FDM where we hope to:
- Share how a State child welfare agency is using the FDM to measure family outcomes and track worker activities in the context of a Differential Response system
- Describe how the FDM is used to enhance family engagement
- Share research on the Matrix Outcomes Model Project and its alignment with protective factors and the Pathways model of interventions
- Answer questions about the Model Project and its implementation
- Describe available resources and technical assistance for States interested in implementing FDM
Presenters will include:
- Brad Richardson, Ph.D., National Resource Center for In-Home Services (NRCinhome) Research Director and Lisa D’Aunno, NRCinhome Project Director
- Jerry Endres, M.S.W., Matrix Outcomes Model Project Director for California Office of Child Abuse Prevention
- Judi Sherman, M.A., Projects Manager, Strategies
- Sarah Rock, Bureau Chief, Office of Child Abuse Prevention, State of California
The NRC for In-Home Services is a national center of child welfare expertise on in-home services designed to ensure the safety and well-being of children and youth in their homes, prevent their initial placement or re-entry into foster care, and preserve, support, and stabilize families. The NRCinhome provides free, onsite technical assistance and training to States and Tribes to build systemic capacity to provide effective family preservation and post-reunification services, through the implementation of child welfare best practices and by strengthening systems of care.
