Gary, Corinne, and Emily recently returned from a very informative meeting with our colleagues at the Annie E. Casey Foundation (AECF) in Baltimore, MD. ShadowBox has been working with the Casey Foundation as part of the On the Frontline initiative since Spring 2014. Representatives from the three sites involved in the project (Cuyahoga Cty, OH; Allegheny Cty, PA; Jefferson Cty, CO) shared their progress toward their goals in three target areas: Improving the workforce, improving worker decision-making, and improving system decision-making.
We were very excited to share our progress to-date and to gather feedback about next steps, along with many new insights about how ShadowBox training can impact decision-making in frontline social work. We'd like to thank our AECF colleagues for their hospitality, and we look forward to continuing our work in this complex but important domain.
