One Agency's Journey to Developing More Effective Supervisors

7/12/2006:   CWLA is presenting the fourth installment of its six-part 2006 Competence On Call teleconference series on July 20, 2:00-3:30 p.m. (EDT), with a look at the efforts of the Jewish Board of Family and Children's Services (JBFCS) to develop more effective supervisors among its ranks.

JBFCS began a process to improve the effectiveness of its residential milieu line supervisors by beginning delivery of two 18-hour Effective Supervisory Practice courses. What began as two courses geared to one targeted discipline has blossomed into a 60-hour certificate in Supervision (with 30 more elective hours) that is now used by supervisors throughout the agency. Several JBFCS staff will join in a discussion about how their agency's targeted efforts to address a single issue became a significant transformational project for the entire agency.

CWLA's teleconference series provides a forum to consider critical child welfare issues, disseminate research findings, and inform the field about innovative policy and practice initiatives. The current series focuses on agencies that have taken a variety of paths in attempting to transform themselves to better meet the service and system challenges of 21st Century child welfare work.
