Factors Associated with Placement Decisions in Child Welfare.
Phillips, Michael H.; And Others
This report presents findings from the first phase of a study by the Research Center of the Child Welfare League of children receiving service in their homes, the nature of the service and its outcome. This initial phase related to factors associated with the choice of own home service or placement for children on whose behalf service was sought from one voluntary and three public child-welfare agencies. Data were obtained through a detailed Intake and Decision Schedule completed by caseworkers on 290 families. A substudy was undertaken to determine whether experienced practitioners would agree with each other and with the worker on the case with respect to placement/own home service decisions. Results obtained are presented. An appendix provides the Intake and Decision Schedule. (Author/DB)
