The Children’s Bureau invests in the development of resources and services for new and seasoned child welfare agency and legal professionals every year. Unfortunately, many of these products, tools, and opportunities do not reach everyone that could use them, or they aren’t designed to best meet the needs and preferences of this constantly changing workforce.
The Child Welfare Information Study aims to better understand how people who work and study in the field of child welfare use and access job-related information. By better understanding where you go for information and the technologies you use, the Children’s Bureau and national and local technical assistance providers will have data to help design more useful materials and make sure that you (and others like you) hear about these resources and can more easily find them.
The survey, administered by the Child Welfare Information Gateway, covers questions about attorneys’ work; how attorneys access and use information; and attorneys’ preferences for professional training. This survey should take no more than 20 minutes to complete.
Attorneys’ responses will help to represent the national child welfare workforce. If you choose to participate, your responses will be anonymous, stored securely by the study team, and combined with many others so that patterns in behavior and preferences can be understood for larger groups. Participation is completely voluntary, and you may withdraw at any time.
