In 2016, ACL coordinated the development of the National Voluntary Consensus Guidelines for State APS Systems (Guidelines) to assist states in developing effective APS systems and to provide recommendations from the field. Development involved multiple steps, including a review of research on what works in APS agencies and similar systems as well as extensive stakeholder engagement. In the past year, ACL coordinated a similar process for updating the Guidelines with findings from new research and experiences from the field. This webinar will provide an overview of the update process and revisions made.
