This video captures a presentation given on August 27, 2009, that discusses implementing a comprehensive family-centered approach in child welfare systems. It begins by explaining that family-centered treatment means that problems and solutions are defined within the context of the family and the family's strengths and resources, and that the focus of the treatment is on working with families not individuals. Information is provided on: the definition of family, key components of family-centered treatment, features of the paradigm shift to family-centered treatment, services provided to the child and parent, principles and functions of comprehensive case management, the need for a holistic approach, comprehensive family assessment, service plan development, wellness and recovery planning, and the benefits of a family-centered plan.
