Ready, Set, Go ... Again: Renewing an Academy-Agency Child Welfare Partnership
Pierce, Barbara; McGuire, Lisa E.; Howes, Patricia
Journal of Social Work Education, v51 suppl 2 pS239-S251 2015
This article presents a case study of the renewed partnership between a midwestern public child welfare agency and a midwestern university school of social work. The partnership, which includes educating BSW and MSW students, preparing frontline child welfare case managers, and providing leadership training for supervisors and managers, demonstrates relational capital, relational embeddedness, and transparency, all of which are criteria for trust and strong partnerships. We discuss the unique development of collaborative relationships through the history of the partnership. This study provides an exemplar of how the academy and the agency communities can inform each other to enhance the well-being of children and families.
