Applicability of the Oregon-based Public and Private Child Welfare Models to Ukraine: A Case Study of the Training Seminars for Ukrainian Officials and Child Welfare Professionals
This study assesses the implementation of Oregon-based child welfare models in Ukraine in the context of the Family For Children (FCP) curriculum. Both trainees' and trainers' perspectives on these issues were surveyed. The assessment shows that the implementation of Oregon-based models needs some adjustment to local socio-economic conditions and current child welfare policies in Ukraine. Nine recommendations have emerged as a result of this study that relate to logistical, organizational, and communicational aspects of the training. None of the recommendations concern the conceptual content of the training, and overall all participants judged the curriculum and training to be very successful.
