Focus on Parental Visiting.
Child Welfare Information Services, Inc., New York, NY.
This report consists of seven charts which present data on patterns of parental visiting of children in foster care in New York City from October 1976 through March 1977. Information contained in the charts is derived from the quarterly Child Welfare Information Services (CWIS) reports developed by David Fanshel and John Grundy. The charts present data on the relationship between the frequency of visits and location of visits, court status of the children, ethnicity, current age, years in care, and discharge objective. The paper includes an interpretation and discussion of the charts, a summary of the findings, and letters to the editor commenting on previous FOCUS reports. Also included is a chart for comparing the CWIS data to data from other agencies. (BD)
