San Bernardino

San Bernardino presented an innovative means to incorporate the Integrated Core Practice Model (ICPM) into their prevention community pathways. The CPP identified and outlined the community pathways using the lens of each different community point of contact. They created space for community-based organizations, faith-based organizations, schools, healthcare providers, or other local organizations/service providers to request Preventive Child and Family Team Meetings (CFTMs) for families in need of prevention services, like the ICPM CFTs held after entry into foster care. The county illustrated meaningful cross-sector collaboration and focus groups with all required entities, Tribes, and children and parents that have lived child welfare experience. The initial candidate population will be made up of families connected with child welfare/probation or that have been identified by the community as having risk factors that could potentially lead to a connection.

San Bernardino County chose to implement the following EBPs: Functional Family Therapy (FFT), Parent and Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), Early Identification and Intervention Services (EIIS), Motivational Interviewing (MI) for substance abuse and Cross-Cutting, and Wraparound.
