Improve Your Work With the Courts

Suggestions for supervisors:

  • To get people to the meetings, give specifics—people are more likely to show up at meetings
    when specific changes that impact their work directly are being discussed
  • Emphasize to staff that court changes require collaboration—a team effort
  • Remember that resolution of the child's life is the primary motivation and focus for all

Suggestions for social workers:

  • Be prepared when you go
  • Know how to testify
  • Have the appropriate paperwork ready
  • Be responsible
  • Keep a good image: Your image counts—it reflects upon your agency
