I) INTRODUCING “THE SIM TEAM”
 Univer sity Consor tium for Children and Families (UCCF )
 Cal State, L.A. - Harkmore Lee, MSW
 Cal State, Long Beach - James Ferreira, MSW
 UCLA - Heidi Staples, MSW
 USC - Donna Toulmin, JD
 Trainers from all 4 UCCF Partners, e.g. Monica McCurdy, Lilli Miles, Alberto
Reynoso, Monica Malin, Ana Sufuentes
 Los Angeles County Depar tment of Children and Family Ser vices (DCF S) –
Training Section
 Beth Minor
 Michele Brienze
 Training Section staff, e.g. Edmarine Edwards, Janae Mankowski
 Los Angeles Of fice of County Counsel
 Tamera Pruitt
 Law Enforcement Consultant
 Warren Ondatje
II) BRIEF HISTORY
2013:
 March – Physical design of “residential simulation lab” developed at
Cal State LA . Discuss with DCFS staf f on potential use.
 July - Aug:
 Construction of Residential Simulation Lab “mock up” at Cal State LA
 DCFS and UCCF trainers observe LE simulations
 Simulation scenarios created; roles defined and rehearsed.
 Aug. 29th – First simulation for new trainees @ CSULA’s RSL
 Sept–Dec:
 Simulations are being fully incorporated into academy trainings
 Other partners, such as County Counsel, PHNs are brought in.
 Attention from media
 CSULB begins to create its own simulation environment
II) BRIEF HISTORY
2014:
 Jan-March
 LA County Board of Supervisors & Blue Ribbon Commission Reports
 Cal State LA’s Residential Sim Lab undergoes renovation and upgrade.
 UCLA begins to create its own simulation environment.
 April to Present:
 Cal State LA develops and tests evaluation instruments for simulations.
Will design and coordinate evaluation for all sims.
 USC plans to replicate CSULA’s Residential Sim Lab at their training
center.
 Plans to expand use of simulations to train current CSWs and SCSWs
(2,500+ people) over the next two years.
WHAT IS SIMULATION?
 “Simulation is a technique, not a technology, to replace
or amplify real experiences with guided experiences,
often immersive in nature, that evoke or replicate
substantial aspects of the real world in a fully
interactive fashion” (Gaba, 2007)

“A method of instruction whereby an artificial or
hypothetical experience that engages the learner in an
activity reflecting real-life conditions but without the risktaking consequences of an actual situation is created.”
(Bastable, 2008).
SIMULATION IN ACTION @
THE RESIDENTIAL SIM LAB AT CAL STATE LA

IN GENERAL, SIMULATIONS…
…are designed specifically to promote
critical thinking, decision making, analysis
and problem solving in a safe, controlled
and realistic environment.
…provide a bridge from theory to practice.
…offer trainees the opportunity to prepare
and practice their knowledge and skills,
while also receiving constructive and
supportive feedback from training faculty.
…can help increase confidence and
competency
KEY ELEMENTS OF
SIMULATION TRAINING
PROGRAM
A) FOCUS ON MISSION, PREPARATION, AND
DEMONSTRATION
CHILD SAFETY, PERMANENCY, WELL-BEING
INCREASE T.O.L. OF CRITICAL SKILLS AND
COMPETENCIES
CORE PRACTICE MODEL
B) DIRECTION AND SUPPORT FROM AGENCY &
UNIVERSIT Y SSW LEADERSHIP
PUSH TO INNOVATE
NO MORE “DOING BUSINESS AS USUAL”
COLLABORATION, COLLABORATION
C) CURRICULUM DESIGN AND DEVELOPEMENT
 THEORETICAL FRAMEWORKS (KOLB, BANDURA)
 THEMES, LEARNING OBJECTIVES, FACT PATTERNS
 SCAFFOLDING AND SEQUENCED LEARNING
 MULTI-DISCIPLINARY TRAINING TEAMS
CRITICAL LEARNING COMPONENTS
 BASELINE SKILLS AND STANDARDS
 SAFE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT
 READINESS
 PEER LEARNING
 TRANSFER OF SKILL-BASED LEARNING
D) IMPLEMENTATION AND LOGISTICS
 BUILDING SIMULATION LAB / SETS
 “ACTORS” = TRAINERS, SUBJECT MATTER EXPERTS
 FACILITATOR’S GUIDEBOOK FOR EACH SIMULATION
 PREPPING AND SCHEDULING
CONSTRUCTION OF 528 SQ.FT, 1 BED,
1 BA APT. INSIDE A CLASSROOM (CSULA)
CONSTRUCTION OF 528 SQ.FT, 1 BED,
1 BA APT. INSIDE A CLASSROOM (CSULA)
Residential Sim Lab Construction Costs:
a) Initial Mock-up (Aug. 2013; 3 weeks) = $2,000
(materials, staff labor, props donated)
b) Lab Renovation & Upgrade (Jan. 2014; 6 weeks)
= $18,900 (labor, materials to bring up to
building code + creation of storage/prop room.
Props donated)
c) Installation of AV/Recording/Sounds Effects
Equipment for “Closed Set” (Fall 2014) = $ TBD
USE OF PARTITIONS IN TRAINING ROOM
TO CREATE SIM AREAS (CSULB)
USE OF PARTITIONS IN TRAINING ROOM
TO CREATE SIM AREAS (UCLA)
E) RESEARCH AND EVALUATION
 HOW DO YOU KNOW IF SIMULATIONS WORK?
 EXPLORING RESEARCH AND EVALUATION METHODS
USED IN OTHER PROFESSIONS WHO USE SIMULATION
(E.G. MEDICAL/NURSING, LE, MILITARY)
 WORK OF MARION BOGO AND MARY RAWLINGS WITH
OSCEs (Objective Structured Clinical Examination )
 EFFECTIVE EVALUATION METHODS AND RESULTS =>
SUSTAINABILITY OF SUPPORT
F) LESSONS LEARNED
 FLEXIBLE LEARNING IS POSSIBLE WITHIN A
STANDARDIZED FORMAT
 LESS IS MORE
 KEEP TRAINERS REFRESHED
 AFTER NEARLY ONE YEAR, PROGRAM IS BOTH
EVOLVING BUT “MATURING”
Q&A
“TELL ME,
AND I WILL FORGET.
SHOW ME,
AND I MAY REMEMBER.
INVOLVE ME,
AND I WILL UNDERSTAND.”
