AASWSW's Listening Group Session on the definition of Child Welfare
Recently, the Child Welfare League of America (CWLA), the American Public Human Services Association (APHSA), and the American Academy of Social Work and Social Welfare (AASWSW) were asked by Casey Family Programs, The Annie E. Casey Foundation, and the William T. Grant Foundation to engage you and your peers in a collaborative review of a draft 21st Century Research Agenda.

According to the three foundations, “The purpose of building a 21st Century research agenda – grounded in diversity, equity, and inclusion – to support child and family well-being is to (1) form a broad-based coalition of research partners to identify research gaps to support child welfare, (2) articulate clear research questions that need to be addressed that are relevant for families, jurisdiction leaders, policy-makers and practitioners; (3) identify research strategies that will close the gaps and answer those key questions; and (4) help agencies use findings to improve policy, program and practice strategies resulting in transformative systems change.
