OFA Webinar: Emerging Practices in Staff Training for TANF Programs

As a part of the Systems to Family Stability (SFS) National Policy Academy technical assistance efforts, the Office of Family Assistance hosted a webinar on Emerging Practices in Staff Training for TANF Programs on Wednesday, September 21, 2016 at 3:00 PM ET, for the SFS sites, as well as the entire TANF field. Many Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) programs, and other programs serving low-income individuals and families, are seeking ways to better train their staff in the basics of providing public assistance benefits to needy families, which includes delivering curriculum on eligibility determination, data systems, developing comprehensive assessments and self-sufficiency plans, understanding executive functioning, and conducting motivational interviews. This webinar was designed to help the Systems to Family Stability National Policy Academy sites, the TANF field, and other human service system stakeholders understand how to assess their own training systems, become more familiar with components of effective training, and ultimately work to improve training systems in their state and local agencies. Presenters included: Lisa Washington-Thomas from the Office of Family Assistance; Carol Mizoguchi from the Office of Family Assistance, Bill Callahan from Washington State Department of Social and Health Services, and Charmaine Brittain with the Butler Institute for Families at the University of Denver.
