New (September 2013):  Caseflow Management in Child Abuse and Neglect Cases

The National Resource Center on Program Resource Development has released the first two modules of the animated web course on caseflow management in child abuse and neglect cases. Module 1 is an introduction to the course, Module 2 covers the Toolkit measures, and Module 3 (not yet released) will cover the well-being measures. As a bit of background, in 2009 they created  a basic case flow management course targeted to trial court managers, court clerks, and court staff. The course was offered live several times as a two and a half day session, but that was an expensive proposition and several states requested a single-day version of the course to be conducted on site. Even those trips were difficult to arrange and sometimes to fund under current technical assistance constraints, so they decided to make these a web-based course under the auspices of the National Resource Center on Legal and Judicial Issues. This will soon be up on the Resource Center website, but in the meantime you may preview these using the links below.
