Dual Status Youth - Technical Assistance Workbook

While this publication’s title would lead you to believe it is specifically for those with technical assistance from the Robert F. Kennedy National Resource Center for Juvenile Justice, the workbook is designed “to provide practical guidance for state and local jurisdictions in their endeavor to improve the outcomes for dual status youth and families and to enhance system performance among the critical youth- and family-serving agency partners ... [and] serves as an accompaniment to the newly revised Guidebook for Juvenile Justice and Child Welfare System Coordination and Integration: A Framework for Improved Outcomes [NIC accession no. 028039]” (p. 1). The initiative process is comprised of four phases: Phase 1-Mobilization and Advocacy; Phase 2-Study and Analysis; Phase 3-Action Strategy; and Stage 4-Implementation. Appendixes provide a wide range of associated material including: Participants by Role; Recommended Infrastructure; Sample Kickoff Invitation; Practice Development Template; Sample Kickoff Agenda; Monthly Progress Report Template; Missions and Mandates Template; Law and Policy Inventory and Analysis Template; County Case Flow Process Mapping; Screening and Assessment Inventory Example; Resource Inventory Example; Santa Clara County MOU (Memorandum of Understanding); and the Outagamie Logic Model.
