Solution-Based Casework (SBC) provides a common conceptual map for child welfare caseworkers, supervisors, leadership, and treatment providers to help focus everyone’s efforts on clear and agreed upon outcomes. The approach is designed to help child welfare workers focus on the family in order to support the safety and well-being of their children. The approach targets specific everyday events in the life of a family that have caused difficulty. SBC has materials available in English, Mandarin, and Spanish.
