Ms. Jones has been unable to successfully complete 2 out of 3 adult interviews during her first 90 day evaluation and has not moved to 50% caseload.
On April 15, 2016, Guy Johnson met with Amanda Jones to review the evaluation results on the adult interviews conducted during the first Evaluation #1. Ms. Jones’ Coaching Plan will last thirty (30) days and will focus on areas of improvement when interviewing adults with a focus on assessing safety. Ms. Jones’ Coaching Plan is below:
During the next thirty days, Ms. Jones (CW Specialist) will complete at a minimum, four adult interviews. Mr. Johnson (supervisor) will observe each interview and evaluate Ms. Jones using the grading tools provided by the Training Unit.
- Specific areas for improvement in the adult interview are: exploring safety in substance abuse and domestic violence during each interview. Ms. Jones needs to ensure she uses follow up questions throughout each interview and to use probing questions when discussing discipline, parental substance abuse and domestic violence.
Mr. Johnson and Ms. Jones will meet weekly to discuss any challenges or barriers Ms. Jones may believe is impeding her learning. During her final evaluation by Mr. Johnson, Ms. Jones must successfully complete 2 out of 3 interviews. At the end of the 30 days Mr. Johnson will scan the grading sheets and send them to the child welfare training unit. If Ms. Jones has successfully completed 2 out of 3 interviews, she will be granted a 50% caseload and proceed to the beginning of Phase 3. If Ms. Jones is unsuccessful, she will not be certified and she will be unable to carry a 50% caseload.
