SOC Toolbox: Partnering with Families and Youth

In this section, you will find guidance to support a key building block of quality care and system of care and that is respectful partnerships with families and youth. Each section contains guidance and tools to assist you. If you are in the very beginning stages of involving families and youth in Collaborative meetings, other meetings, and policy, program or organization development, it is recommended that you review the sections from the beginning. If you are further along with family involvement, then it is recommended that you review each question and review materials under the one that best supports the stage of development you may be experiencing. The section on evaluating your progress in partnering with families and youth will help you in determining where to start.

Under most questions you will also find useful "TOOLS" to assist you in that particular area of family and youth collaboration. Each of these tools will have a link with the title as well as a brief summary of its use. The TOOLS section may also include other helpful links, websites or articles. <more>
