Course Info URL: http://www.ce-credit.com/courses/101530
About the Course:
A growing number of State and local child protective services (CPS) agencies are employing some form of differential response. In these systems, families reported for suspected child abuse or neglect may receive either a traditional investigation or an assessment alternative, depending on the severity of the allegation and other considerations. The issue brief upon which this course is based provides an overview of differential response, highlights lessons learned through research and experience, and offers some guiding principles for implementation.
