Stafford, Beth G.; And Others
One of four volumes regarding the CARE (Children's Agencies, Resources, Etc.) Linkages Project in Tennessee, this document contains (1) a review of literature concerning collaboration among social agencies; (2) an annotated bibliography of publications gathered during the literature review; and (3) a summary of the results of telephone surveys made of other interagency collaborative efforts. Section 1, the literature review, covers the historical development of coordination among social agencies in the United States, theories of coordination, and various collaborative models. It also describes research concerning factors that encourage or discourage collaboration, the collaborative process, and the benefits resulting from collaboration. Section 2, the annotated bibliography, is organized according to the following subject areas: historical development of coordination, theory, models, process of collaboration, research, other collaborative projects, and related reading. Section 3, the summary of the telephone survey, describes the background, model, process, and assessment of eight collaborative projects. The goal of this survey was to gather information on projects similar to the CARE effort that had not been fully reported in the literature. A copy of the telephone questionnnaire is included. (CB)
