Delivering and Sustaining Evidence Based Interventions (EBIs)
Co-sponsored by the National Resource Center for Permanency and Family Connections (NRCPFC)
Attend one or both sessions!

Each of these sessions will feature a site that has implemented at least one evidence based intervention (EBI), and highlight how the EBI has been supported on an organizational level and experienced on a practice level.   From each jurisdiction we will hear three perspectives – a child welfare administrator, a provider directly managing the service, and a practitioner. The child welfare administrator and provider will discuss what it takes to support and sustain an EBI, and the practitioner will describe how the intervention works in practice.   Presenters will explore the challenges involved in delivering EBIs, and lessons learned about maintaining these effective programs and practices over time.  

Objectives
Participants in this session will:
-
Learn about critical strategies for supporting and sustaining EBIs in the face of challenges;
- Have an increased understanding of how a specific evidence based intervention is utilized in the real world context of families and children in the child welfare system.
