Cross Sites Meeting 2015: Supporting Families through Collaborative Community Efforts 

The Safe Babies Court Teams and the Quality Improvement Center for Research-Based Infant-Toddler Court Teams (QIC-CT) co-hosted our annual Cross Sites Meeting from October 7th through October 9th in Des Moines, Iowa. The theme for this meeting is “Supporting Families through Collaborative Community Efforts.” The meeting brings together judges, child welfare professionals, and other stakeholders to discuss child welfare practices for infants and toddlers in the child welfare system. One of the most successful elements of the Cross Sites meeting is the exchange of ideas and innovative approaches across sites. The QIC-CT brings together a broad learning community that can provide access to the latest scientific and evidence-based practices. The following resources include presentations and relevant materials from the Cross Sites 2015 meeting:
