Permanent Planning for Children in Foster Care: A Handbook for Social Workers.
Pike, Victor; And Others
This handbook, prepared as part of a technical assistance program to the states funded through the Children's Bureau of the Administration for Children, Youth, and Families, is a reference designed to provide caseworkers with both a conceptual framework and practical methodology to secure permanent placements for children who are in foster care. Included are a decision tree (a flow chart showing at a glance all decision points in the process of moving a child from foster care to a permanent living arrangement), step-by-step procedures for achieving a chosen plan, case examples drawn from records of experienced caseworkers, supervisors' and caseworkers' remarks, and a bibliography. Chapters are (1) How to Assess the Barriers to Returning the Child Home; (2) How to Structure a Treatment Program; (3) How to Choose an Alternative Permanent Plan; (4) How to Free the Child for Adoption; and (5) How to Prepare a Termination Case.
