Family Engagement Inventory Coming December 2014
Child Welfare Information Gateway will launch the Family Engagement Inventory (FEI) in December 2014. The FEI is an interactive web-based tool designed to familiarize professionals in child welfare, juvenile justice, behavioral health, early childhood education, and education with family engagement as defined and implemented across these fields of practice. It also aggregates knowledge in a way that assists professionals in multidisciplinary exploration of family engagement. The FEI will help practitioners, managers, and system leaders understand the commonalities and differences in family engagement across the disciplines in order to support collaboration among multiple systems often working with the same families.
The Family Engagement Inventory, a microsite of Child Welfare Information Gateway, will be accessible through the Child Welfare Information Gateway website, https://www.childwelfare.gov/, when it is launched in December 2014.
