The Role of Case Work and Case Management within the Social Service Workforce

April 3, 2012

9:00 AM – 11:00 AM EST (Washington)

This webinar will offer an open forum for discussion about the role of case management in strengthening systems of care and providing better coordination of services for vulnerable children and families.

During the webinar, we will discuss what is meant by “case management” in different settings in order to help address some of the confusion around the topic. Presenters will discuss various approaches that have been developed in different countries, as exemplified by case management definitions, standards of practice, and research studies.

During these discussions, we will have the opportunity to explore the extent to which case management involves a mixture of collective and individual action, and how that mixture might differ based on views of a child within the context of his or her family and community.

Participants may log onto the webinar session by following the instructions described at the following link.
