Recommendations

What is shared parenting
What is shared parenting? Carolina Curriculum Review Project

  • Is it a meeting or a process?

  • Initial meeting cannot occur during a Child and Family Team Meeting because purpose is relationship development

  • First CFTM takes time to organize; SP meeting must be held within 7 days of placement

  • After initial SP meeting, CFTMs can be considered as a part of the SP process


Policy recommendations
Policy Recommendations Carolina Curriculum Review Project

  • Policy should more clearly define and describe shared parenting

  • Policy should clarify that SP contacts can be made at CFTMs as long as purposes of SP are addressed (but not initial SP meeting)


Curricular recommendations
Curricular Recommendations Carolina Curriculum Review Project

  • Clarify relationship between CFTMS and shared parenting

  • Add strategies for operationalizing family-centered principles

  • Add practical material on how to “do” shared parenting

  • Documentation
