Improving IV-A/IV-D Interface. Trainer Guide.
National Inst. for Child Support Enforcement, Chevy Chase, MD.
Effective interface between the Aid to Families with Dependent Children (IV-A) and the Child Support Enforcement (IV-D) programs is a key factor in assisting families in becoming self-sufficient, reducing welfare expenditures, and enforcing parental responsibility to support their children. Consequently, overcoming the procedural, technological, and organizational obstacles that impede interface between these programs has become a national priority. The training program described in this guide was developed to improve the communication, cooperation, and coordination between the two federal programs. This trainer guide is intended for use by State supervisors and trainers responsible for designing and conducting IV-A/IV-D interface training. It is organized into the following five modules: (1) the need for IV-A/IV-D interface; (2) overview of the State IV-A/IV-D programs; (3) the IV-A/IV-D interface process: IV-A's role; (4) the IV-A/IV-D interface process: IV-D's role; and (5) strategies for improving interface. The course design is structured for an audience that comprises both IV-A and IV-D workers to maximize the utility and impact of the training. Each module provides instruction for how to conduct all exercises and includes a variety of handouts and summary materials to support each training activity as necessary. (ABL)
