A Framework to Design, Test, Spread, and Sustain Effective Child Welfare Practice: Develop & Test and Compare & Learn (Part 3)

Any agency that develops a new child welfare program or practice wants to increase the likelihood it will be effective. Building on their two preceding videos, the narrators introduce viewers to two additional phases of the framework: Develop & Test and Compare & Learn. They describe how agencies can complete a series of key steps when attempting to design a new intervention and determine whether the interventions result in better outcomes for children and families than their usual practices.
