On July 6, 2015, from 3 to 4 p.m. ET, CJJR will host a free webinar that will provide an overview of the Multi-System Integration Certificate Program. This webinar is part of a five-part webinar series through the Center for Coordinated Assistance to States (CCAS), a partnership between CJJR, the American Institute for Research (AIR) and the Council for Juvenile Correctional Administrators (CJCA) that provides training and technical assistance to communities involved in juvenile related reforms.
1) Highlight key issues jurisdictions face in serving multi-system youth, particularly those involved in the child welfare and juvenile justice systems; also known as “crossover youth.” Discuss various efforts to address these issues.
2) Discuss the best practices for collaborating across systems to improve outcomes for multi-system youth. Topics discussed will include, but are not limited to, aligning case assessment, planning and management, providing enhanced education and behavioral health services, strengthening youth and family engagement, and addressing racial and ethnic disproportionality.
3) Provide a general overview of the 2015 Multi-System Integration Certificate Program, a weeklong intensive training that will take place at Georgetown University from October 29 – November 4, 2015 and bring together current and future leaders to increase their knowledge about multi-system reform efforts related to crossover youth and highlight best practices to address the above issues.
