Solution Based Casework: Making the Link Fact Sheet

Solution Based Casework: Making the Link Fact Sheet

The Center for the Study of Social Policy’s (CSSP) Strengthening Families (SF) Protective Factors Framework is a research-informed, cost-effective strategy to increase family stability, enhance child development, and reduce child abuse and neglect.  This document is part of the Making the Link fact sheets series from the CSSP, which focuses on alignment of SF with practice models in child welfare systems.  In this fact sheet, the gap is bridged between SF and the Solution Based Casework model.  Solution Based Casework is an evidence-based, family centered model that seeks to help family teams organize, prioritize, and document steps they will take to create safety, improved well-being, and permanency for their children.  The three basic goals of Solution Based Casework are: (1) Develop partnerships with families, providers, and family networks; (2) Focus on pragmatic everyday family tasks; and (3) Promote specific prevention skills needed for families to successfully fulfill these everyday tasks.  Link to site.
