Synopsis: Legally mandated investigation, prosecution and treatment of child abuse, requires police, protective services, prosecutors, family court and treatment providers to negotiate overlapping roles affecting children and families. A model for collaborative strengths-based practice, derived from theory of team development, was used to redesign this system response to reported abuse in Kansas City, Missouri. Administrators developed system goals, protocol and training for these complementary roles and responsibilities as well as a shared database to evaluate protocol fidelity. This paper presents theory-based development of system cohesion, and compares this model of system development with logic and phase models.
