Free text Tools for Permanency aims to promote family-centered and collaborative approaches to achieving safety, timely permanency and the overall well-being of children and families within the child welfare system. Concurrent Permanency Planning offers caseworkers a structured approach to moving children more quickly from the uncertainty of foster care to the stability and security of a permanent family (http://www.hunter.cuny.edu/socwork/nrcfcpp/downloads/tools/cpp-tool.pdf); Family Group Decision Making is a family focused, culturally sensitive approach to developing permanency plans for children who are in foster care or who are at risk of entering foster care due to parental abuse or neglect (http://www.hunter.cuny.edu/socwork/nrcfcpp/downloads/tools/fgdm-tool.pdf); Child Welfare Mediation is a tool that child welfare practitioners may use to engage families in decision making about their children and themselves. Mediation can enhance permanency planning by reducing the parents' sense of alienation and helplessness and empowering parents by involving them in planning their children's futures (http://www.hunter.cuny.edu/socwork/nrcfcpp/downloads/tools/cwm-tool.pdf)
