Disproportionate representation and First Nations child welfare in Canada by Richard Sullivan( )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Disproportionality in child welfare is disturbing for many reasons, not least of which is that it reveals major structural fractures in the social contract of our country. When any identifiable group has disproportionate numbers of children coming into state care, the underlying issues that may give rise to problems in family functioning warrant examination. Alas these underlying problems are not typically addressed in conventional approaches to service in behalf of families at risk of disruption. Indeed it is quite common for interventions to focus on the 'problem' family while ignoring significant contributors to the family problems. This paper seeks to identify some of the patterns that may illuminate structural concomitants of disproportionality and to review some approaches that go beyond the limits of traditional responses within residual social welfare systems
Report on the evaluation of the adoption reunion registry by Richard Sullivan( Book )

5 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As part of its contract with Family Services of Greater Vancouver in setting up the Adoption Reunion Registry, the British Columbia Minister of Social Services sought to evaluate the operation of the registry at the point when sufficient reunions had been completed to enable a rigorous evaluation of user satisfaction and recommendations regarding the search and reunion process. This report describes the evaluation methodology and presents the results of the evaluation, which employed a survey mailed to every adoptee and birth parent who had completed a reunion through the Registry prior to March 1994. Issues examined in the survey included the factors in birth mothers' original placement decisions, whether the option of reunion would have affected that decision, whether identifying information should be available to adult applicants, and the availability and degree of satisfaction with reunion services. A copy of the survey questionnaire is included, as well as a summary of response data

Accordingly, the Ministry formed a provincial advisory committee to examine the quality of services delivered to permanent wards. The committee conducted its first review as a pilot project in Region J, the northernmost region of the province, where 60% of the permanent wards were of aboriginal origin. This report describes the review process, the characteristics and case histories of the children interviewed, and the findings. The report also summarizes the committee's work in collaborating with Region J aboriginal communities to plan for aboriginal children in permanent care
