This summary report tells the story of what we learned from four children’s experiences through the lens of the people who endeavor to help and protect them: caseworkers, juvenile probation and parole officers, supervisors, administrators and specialists. The OCA convened SLR teams and provided them with tools and the children’s narratives. The SLR teams examined the narratives, explored the features of their work environments, and contemplated adjustments to the system. The considerations resulting from the team’s work aim to inform system strengthening and improve outcomes for children and families. (Author abstract)
