NYU Center for Child Welfare Practice Innovation

About me

The NYU Center for Child Welfare Practice Innovation is dedicated to improve the standard of trauma-informed care within the nation’s child welfare system. Improving this care requires the effective implementation of practices that fit the complex needs of the key stakeholders in the child welfare system, including: 1. the children and families in need of care, 2. the providers responsible for delivering this care, and 3. the agencies responsible for organizing and overseeing this care.

The NYU Center for Child Welfare Practice Innovation develops practices designed for such fit and supports their implementation within agencies that provide care to children and families in the child welfare system. Supported practices address: 1. the policies, procedures, and array of interventions and services offered by a child welfare agency, and the needs of such agencies to institute recommended changes, 2. the knowledge, skill set, and human needs of providers who are expected to deliver effective trauma-informed care, and 3. the process by which agencies and providers determine the service/intervention needs of the children and families in their care, and the process by which interventions and services are selected and delivered to meet these needs.
