Child welfare agencies in this country are suffering from over two decades of neglect and under-funding, which has eroded major sections of our country’s social services infrastructure. At the same time, there is a growing realisation that “business as usual” in many areas of child welfare is not adequate for strengthening families and protecting children. Yet, it is ironic that at a time when both public and private agencies are being swamped with referrals, cost-effective treatment strategies are being developed. It is a national disgrace that many child welfare staff members lack either the time or training to implement these service innovations. Within this context, this book examines major policy, practice and research issues as they jointly shape current child welfare practice and possible future directions. In addition to describing the major problems in the field of child welfare, the book highlights some of the service innovations that have been developed, which could be used to help address some of these challenges. The contents include Child Development: Orientation and Scope; Perspectives on Child Development Services; Child Welfare Services; Theory and Practice; Understanding the Policy Context for Child Welfare; Intake, Investigation and Risk Assessment in Child Welfare and Sociology of the Child Welfare Worker. There is also a Bibliography and Index. This book will be useful for students, teachers and researchers in Social Welfare, Sociology and Child Studies.
