Child Welfare & Juvenile Justice: Clarifying roles for optimal youth & family collaboration
As implementation of Juvenile Justice Reform continues in Nebraska, one of the key areas of focus is clarifying the distinct roles of juvenile justice and child welfare. These roles are very different, but must be united to maximize the services and support provided to youth and families in order to ensure success. Additionally, youth may require supports from both systems simultaneously which reinforces the need for collaboration. This webinar will discuss the different roles of juvenile justice and child welfare, as well as how collaboration is essential for probation officers and child welfare workers who must work together to develop plans that ensure youth achieve success in Nebraska Toward Equity.
