Abstract

The June 2013 Child Welfare Policy Update (link here) introduced the concept of the Differential Response System, an approach used by child protective agencies to have more than one way of responding to allegations of child abuse. Iowa’s Child Protective System will implement a Differential Response approach in January 2014. Child Protective Systems in other states have found Differential Response to be more effective in engaging and empowering families while concurrently maintaining the safety of children. This second policy update regarding Iowa’s Differential Response is designed to provide DHS staff and community members with more specific information about the changes in practice associated with Differential Response, and to provide updates to the work being done by the Differential Response workgroups.
