Thornton, Pamela L.; Okundaye, Joshua N.; Harrington, Donna
Child Welfare, v86 n6 p67-88 Nov-Dec 2007
Understanding models of multidisciplinary collaborations in child welfare has become essential for policy development, program success, and improving outcomes for children in foster care. The authors present the state of Maryland's Guardianship Assistance Project (GAP) as a model of multidisciplinary collaboration in child welfare and describe the training process that supported the development of the model. Key components for effective collaborative practice, lessons learned, and recommendations from the GAP collaboration are presented. (Contains 2 tables and 3 footnotes.)
