Emily Newsome and Noel Polander recently returned from back-to-back trips in Alleghany County, Pennsylvania, and Cuyahoga County, Ohio, where they tested some of their newest ShadowBox scenarios with frontline child protective services (CPS) workers. These scenarios are part of a larger initiative with the Annie E. Casey Foundation (AECF), On The Frontline, which is a multi-year effort focused on developing innovative approaches for CPS investigations.
We were happy to see that the scenarios generated enthusiasm and productive discussions about how to improve training for CPS worker decision-making. The ShadowBox team would like to extend our apprecation to each of the site representatives for providing such great accomodations, and also to our three AECF representatives that were able to join us and aid in discussion. We look forward to doing the same in Jefferson County, Colorado, next week!
