Abstract

The Child Welfare Policy and Practice Group (CWG) conducted, in 2017, a targeted review of the Iowa Department of Human Services (DHS) child welfare program. The report from the review was submitted to the state in December 2017. Strengths of the system and areas for growth and improvement were noted, and a series of recommendations were left with the state. DHS then requested that CWG provide additional technical assistance in implementing some of those recommendations. In particular, observation of Family Team Decision Meetings (FTDM) for fidelity and effectiveness was suggested in Recommendation 6 in the report. These observations were conducted from August – October, 2018. Reviewers assessed the FTDM process leading up to and following the actual team meeting.
