A Learning Program for New Prevention Case Planners
This 10-day learning program provides Prevention Case Planners with the opportunity to learn more about their role as part of the child welfare system in NYC and their specific responsibilities. Participants will develop skills in assessment, interviewing, and general casework and learn how to integrate cultural humility, critical thinking, strengths-based engagement, and trauma-informed practice into their everyday work with families. Participants will gain insight into how their role intersects with Child Protective Specialists, attorneys, and other collateral roles to maintain focus on the safety, permanency and well-being of children and their families. Participants will also practice the skills they learn in the classroom through practice scenarios, simulations, and structured on-the-job experiences.
This program is designed for both newly hired Prevention Case Planners and those without prior formal onboarding who are working in all preventive service programs, including General Preventive, Family Treatment/Rehabilitation (FTR), and evidence-informed/based models.
Week One of this program is mandatory for all newly hired Prevention Case Planners. Agencies that provide an onboarding program to their newly hired Prevention Case Planners are eligible to substitute Weeks 2 and/or 3 contingent upon approval by the ACS Workforce Institute.
