Residential care of children : comparative perspectives( )

14 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 783 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Residential Care of Children fills major gaps in knowledge about residential care of children, and is sure to inform ongoing debates within and between nations about the appropriate use of such institutions. Each "case study" chapter provides a rich description of the development, current status, and future of residential care in countries from Brazil to Botswana. Chapters describe how residential care is defined in the country in question, how it has evolved over time, including its history, trends over time, and any "landmark" events in the history of residential care. Authors examine factors (historical, political, economic, ideological, and cultural) that have contributed to the observed pattern of development of residential care and provide a description of the current state of residential care (number of children in care, ages, average length of stay, reasons that children/youth are placed in residential care, etc.). Lastly, each case study describes expected future directions for residential care and potential concerns. Two integrative chapters provide a critical cross-national perspective, identifying common themes, analyzing underlying factors, and speculating about the future of residential child care across the globe. This insight-filled book will be required reading for all child welfare scholars, particularly as international perspectives become increasingly emphasized."--Jacket

From child abuse to foster care : child welfare services, pathways and placements by Richard P Barth( )

3 editions published between 2010 and 2017 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"More than two million child abuse reports are filed annually on behalf of children in the United States. Each of the reported children becomes a concern, at least temporarily, of the professional who files the report, and each family is assessed by additional professionals. A substantial number of children in these families will subsequently enter foster care. Until now, the relationships between the performance of our child welfare system and the growth and outcomes of foster care have not been understood. In an effort to clarify them, Barth and his colleagues have synthesized the results of their longitudinal study in California of the paths taken by children after the initial abuse report: foster care, a return to their homes, or placement for adoption. Because of the outcomes of child welfare services in California have national significance, this is far more than a regional study. It provides a comprehensive picture of children's experiences in the child welfare system and a gauge of the effectiveness of that system. The policy implications of the California study have bearing on major federal and state initiatives to prevent child abuse and reduce unnecessary foster and group home care."--Provided by publisher

Self-sufficiency of former foster youth in Wisconsin : analysis of unemployment insurance wage data and public assistance data by Amy Lynn Dworsky( Book )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study used state administrative data to analyze employment, earnings, and public assistance receipt among former Wisconsin foster youth who exited out-of-home care between January 1992 and December 1998 and were at least 17 years old upon exit. Results suggest that former foster youth who had aged out of care or had been discharged to independent living earned significantly more during the first 8 quarters after discharge than those who had been reunified, placed with relatives, or adopted. As a result, their total income was significantly higher. These findings are consistent with what would be expected if former foster youth who had aged out of care or been discharged to independent living were, in fact, living on their own and supporting themselves, while those who had been reunified, placed with relatives, or adopted were being supported by the families with whom they lived. Former foster youth who had run away or been transferred to institutions were employed in significantly fewer quarters and earned significantly less during the first 8 quarters after discharge than those who had been reunified, placed with relatives, or adopted. Again, their lower earnings were reflected in significantly lower total income. (SM)

Reunification of foster children with their families : the case of California's children by Mark E Courtney( )

Challenges and opportunities posed by the reform era by Mark E Courtney( Book )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper outlines the elements of the federal welfare reform legislation and the most important child welfare reforms currently being implemented. Some of the common themes of child welfare reforms are identified. The paper also discusses why new child welfare systems should be designed by child welfare and workfare authorities in collaboration and where child welfare reform should be going. First and foremost among recent federal laws that are significant to child welfare reform is the Adoption and Safe Families Act of 1997, which makes clear that child safety should be the paramount concern of the child welfare system. The Multi-Ethnic Placement Act and its amendments are also important elements of current policy, as are the waivers of regulations governing the expenditure of federal funds for child welfare. Child welfare and workfare reformers should work together, first because of the relationships among family poverty, child abuse and neglect, and involvement in the child welfare system. A second consideration is that the populations served by the workfare and child welfare systems are rapidly becoming one and the same. New service delivery models are likely to emerge in places where the two systems begin to work together. Although every state is running a surplus in its temporary assistance to needy families budget and the federal government is inviting experimentation in child welfare through its waiver program, there is no guarantee that either of these situations will last. This is the time to link basic economic assistance and other services to families. (Sld)
