Serving the urban poor by David Fanshel( Book )

5 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book reports on a study of the urban poor in New York City focusing on the effectiveness of a model of service for this population. The project studied 160 families who were clients of the Lower East Side Family Union, an agency that aims to prevent foster care placement and to help clients mobilize their own coping capacities and to make better use of the resources available in the community. The model focuses on establishing a provider-client relationship that leads to a mutual assessment of needs, priorities, and responses; and on strengthening the family to avoid family dissolution and child placement. The model's core is the concept of a contract that is written individually for each client and that clearly states the client's needs and what services will be offered. Study data were time ordered and collected from the social work associate responsible for the cases and the clients through a content analysis of caseworker records and direct interviews with the subjects. Part I of the book is an introduction to the study. Part ii discusses the external variables affecting the family. Part iii describes the families and their problems. Part iv discusses the effectiveness of the service process and the conclusion of the research. Four appendixes contain two debriefing schedules for interviewing the social work associates, a client interview schedule, and a scale creation strategy. Also included are 40 references. (Jb)

On the road to permanency : an expanded data base for service to children in foster care by David Fanshel( Book )

4 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume reports three related "mini-projects" building upon New York City's Child Welfare Information Services (cwis) program, a management information system for children in care. A field trial was performed to assess the value of new data modules representing information domains which were thought to be highly useful and not normally available. The studies focused on three phenomena: (1) parents' visitation of their children in care, (2) service contacts with parents and the ability of children to establish relationships with their social workers, and (3) the children's foster homes as a potential permanent abode in the event of parental failure to resume care. An important feature of the trial runs of data modules was that they had been linked to the existing cwis database. This link made it possible to sample from each of the 20 to 33 participating agencies' caseloads in a systematic way. Equally important, the link with the cwis database allowed investigators to follow, over the course of a year or more, the progress of children for whom experimental forms had been filled out; such follow-up helped in determining whether measures developed from the data modules were predictive of status changes (for example, the discharge of children to their parents).
