Subject:*Data Available*: National Child Welfare Workforce Institute (NCWWI) Comprehensive Organizational Health Assessment [2014-2019]

National Child Welfare Workforce Institute (NCWWI) Comprehensive Organizational Health Assessment [2014-2019] The National Data Archive on Child Abuse and Neglect is pleased to announce the release of the dataset: Title: National Child Welfare Workforce Institute (NCWWI) Comprehensive Organizational Health Assessment [2014-2019] Investigator(s): Robin Leake, PhD Butler Institute for Families University of Denver Shauna L. Rienks, PhD Butler Institute for Families University of Denver Anna de Guzman, M.A. Butler Institute for Families University of Denver Amy S. He, PhD Butler Institute for Families University of Denver Mary Jo Stahlschmidt, PhD Butler Institute for Families University of Denver Dataset Number: #246 Dataset description page: https://www.ndacan.acf.hhs.gov/datasets/dataset-details.cfm?ID=246 There is no charge to obtain this Restricted Dataset, but eligibility requirements apply. Abstract: The growing complexities of child welfare work require the skills of a high-performing and effective workforce that not only has the competencies to do this difficult work, but the resiliency to thrive in a high-pressure agency environment. The National Child Welfare Workforce Institute (NCWWI) is funded by the Children's Bureau to increase child welfare practice effectiveness through workforce systems development, organizational interventions, and change leadership. The data archived here come from the NCWWI Workforce Excellence (WE) initiative. As part of the initiative, child welfare staff from three sites completed a baseline and follow-up Comprehensive Organizational Health Assessment (COHA) to identify critical workforce strengths and challenges. The first site included a county-administered public child welfare system in a large, urban metropolitan area. The other two sites were state-administered public child welfare systems in two Midwestern states. Baseline assessments contained approximately 307 items, though the number of items displayed to respondents depended on skip logic, which was based on position and whether the respondent worked directly with families. Between July 2014 and July 2015, 2,832 participants completed the baseline COHA survey. At follow-up (approximately three years later), three measures from the baseline COHA were dropped and four new measures were added. Follow-up assessments contained approximately 340 items, and the number of items displayed to respondents depended on the same skip logic used in the baseline assessment. Between November 2017 and February 2019, 2,912 participants completed the follow-up assessment. A total of 1,034 participants completed both assessments. Items in the baseline and follow-up COHA covered individual-level factors (burnout, coping strategies, exposure to violence, intent to stay, job satisfaction, job stress, secondary trauma, self-efficacy, and time pressure), unit-level factors (peer support, supervision, professional sharing/support, team cohesion, and shared vision), organization-level factors (inclusivity, leadership, learning culture, organizational climate, organizational bias, physical environment, professional development and preparation for work, readiness for change, and workplace prejudice and discrimination) and community-level factors (public perceptions of child welfare, inter-professional collaboration, and community resources). ________________________________ National Data Archive on Child Abuse and Neglect (NDACAN) Cornell University / Duke University Telephone: 607-255-7799 Email: NDACAN@cornell.edu Website: www.ndacan.acf.hhs.gov Twitter: https://twitter.com/NDACAN_CU The National Data Archive on Child Abuse and Neglect is a service of the Children’s Bureau | Administration for Children and Families | U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Unsubscribe from the CMRL list
