About Practice Notes

Welcome to the first issue of Children's Services Practice Notes, a quarterly newsletter dedicated to bringing research and information about best practice to North Carolina's child welfare workers.

If you find this newsletter familiar, it may be because for the previous two years, it has been CPS Practice Notes, a publication targeted more specifically toward child protective services. Why the change?

We have expanded the focus of the newsletter to include all of children's services to reflect the belief that because Adoption, Child Protective Services (CPS), and Foster Care programs all work with the same families, it is helpful to think about service to clients in a noncategorical way. Our new format is an attempt to model this approach. Let us know if it helps!
