Professional Development Resource to Promote Family Engagement

The Harvard Family Research Project and the Community Engagement Team in the Department of Human Services in Cambridge, MA have developed the Create Your Own Case Toolkit, a practitioner-driven professional development resource designed to help those who work with families to reflect on experiences with families and recreate stories as cases. The resulting cases that they develop can be used to create informal or formal conversations among practitioners and families, enabling practitioners to better serve children and families.
