Children and HIV/AIDS by Susan Taylor-Brown( Book )

7 editions published between 1999 and 2017 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In December 1982, the Centers for Disease Control received the first reports of cases of children with HIV/AIDS. Since that time, the child welfare system, as well as other human service organizations, have been coping with and responding to the crises of children and families living with HIV/AIDS, including the considerable number of children affected by AIDS through the illness of their parents, siblings, or other family members. This volume is intended as a resource for personnel within the child welfare field serving children and families whose lives are touched by HIV and AIDS. The contributors add insight to and fuel the discussion of the fight against AIDS. They provide tools to help better serve the children and adolescents that the current epidemic so tragically affects. Chapters and contributors include: "Factors Associated with Parents' Decision to Disclose Their HIV Diagnosis to Their Children" by Lori S. Wiener, Haven B. Battles, and Nancy E. Heilman; "Custody Planning with HIV-Affected Families" by Sally Mason; "Correlates and Distribution of HIV Risk Behaviors Among Homeless Youths in New York City" by Michael C. Clatts, W. Rees Davis, J. L. Sotheran, and Aylin Attillasoy; and "HIV Prevention for Youths in Independent Living Programs" by Wendy F. Auslander, Vered Slonim-Nevo, Diane Elze, and Michael Sherraden. Originally published as a special issue of 'Child Welfare', this volume examines lessons learned from a variety of perspectives and settings, and identifies a number of continuing challenges facing the field. 'Children and HIV/AIDS' is an invaluable compendium that should be read by social workers and health specialists and all those affected by the epidemic."--Provided by publisher
Children and AIDS : the challenge for child welfare by Gary R Anderson( Book )

7 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Relating findings to child welfare, this monograph discusses the description of acquired immune deficiency syndrome (aids), the background and history of the affliction, and its transmission and treatment. The review of the brief history of aids addresses the serious and emotionally charged issues associated with the disease, public and professional concern about its transmission and treatment, the plight of children with aids, and their impact on child welfare agencies. Implications for child welfare are discussed in terms of placement decisions, child care, and ethical concerns, including foster parents' rights, the ill child's rights, and agencies' duties. It is concluded that, for the near future, increasing numbers of children ill with aids will require placement and special care. Child welfare agencies will be confronted with service provision problems and ethical dilemmas. Appendices provide tables of data, a definition of pediatric aids, and a list of recommendations for foster care of children with aids. (Rh)

The child adoption marketplace : parental preferences and adoption outcomes by Mark Skidmore( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the United States child adoption costs vary considerably, ranging from no out-of-pocket expense to $50,000 or more. What are the underlying causes for the variability in child adoption expenses? While cost variability is widely acknowledged, the sources of the differentials have not been systematically examined. This research considers the possibility that adoption cost differentials are determined by adoptive parent preferences for adoptive child characteristics. We administered a detailed survey to a sample of Michigan adoptive families to link adoptive parent characteristics, child characteristics, and adoption-related expenses and subsidies. We then use these data to estimate "hedonic" regressions in which adoption cost is a function of child characteristics. Our findings show that as much as 66 percent of the variation in cost is explained by child characteristics. Adoption costs are lower for older children, special needs children, and children of African descent. To our knowledge, this research is original in its application of hedonic analysis to child adoption decisions. Findings of the study inform policies regarding the transition of children from foster care to adoptive families and may help to determine appropriate subsidies aimed at achieving permanency and improved overall child well-being. -- child welfare ; adoption ; subsidy
