A Learning Program for NYC Child Protection Staff
Teaming is an innovative approach to child welfare casework, in which individual casework is supplemented with a team approach on selected cases. Teaming shifts responsibility for case outcomes and progress from the individual caseworker to the entire casework team. This collaborative approach challenges and changes the traditional paradigm of how casework services are provided to families, how caseworkers are supervised, how casework is distributed and how activities are conducted in the agency office. Teaming often involves assigning responsibility for accomplishing case tasks to both a primary and a secondary caseworker, along with the input and assistance of other team members. Supervision is transformed into a facilitated group process with all members of the group contributing their expertise to addressing the needs of the case.
