Improving the Quality of Attorney Representation of Children in the Child Welfare System
In an evaluation of the QIC-ChildRep Best Practices Model Training for Attorneys Representing Children in the Child Welfare System, Chapin Hall researchers, led by Senior Researcher Britany Orlebeke, found that attorneys who participated in the multiyear professional development (PD) program demonstrated significantly more model representation strategies than attorneys who did not participate in the PD program. And as a result, older children whose attorney participated in professional development were more likely to return home within six months. Read more about the evaluation here.
