Cross Sites Meeting 2016: Making Every Connection Matter

The ZERO TO THREE Safe Babies Court Teams, in conjunction with The Quality Improvement Center for Research-Based Infant-Toddler Court Teams (QIC-CT), hosted our 10th Annual Cross Sites Meeting Making Every Connection Matter from October 19-21, 2016 in Orlando, Florida.

Beginning in 2005, the Safe Babies Court Teams Project has hosted an annual meeting at one of our infant-toddler court team sites for child welfare professionals, judges, court personnel, service providers, community coordinators, and other stakeholders. The QIC-CT and SBCT Cross Sites Meeting provides a national learning community to share ideas and innovative approaches, learn about the latest scientific practices in the field, and discuss child welfare policies and practices for infants and toddlers and their families in the child welfare system.
