Concurrent Planning How-Tos and Promising Practices

Northern California Training Academy has focused the spring/summer issue of its newsletter, Reaching Out: Current Issues for Child Welfare Practice in Rural Communities, on concurrent planning, the practice of working on more than one option at a time for achieving a permanent home for children in out-of-home care. The newsletter covers topics related to concurrent planning and how they are applied in California, such as components of successful models and improvements implemented in concurrent planning by the State as a result of its 2008 Child and Family Services Review.
