Local Child Welfare Services Self-Assessment Manual: Part I - Checklists. (Revised Edition).
Homan, Carolyn Clark; And Others
This compilation of checklists was designed to facilitate internal agency improvements by providing a convenient and efficient framework for self-assessment of child welfare services. Checklists in question format are organized into seven sections arranged to reflect the sequence of decisions or activities that occur in an agency offering child welfare services. Following the introduction, the sections on emergency/protective services and intake/service choice are devoted to agency activities from initial service contact to ongoing service provision. The next four sections present the main service areas: in-home services, foster family care, adoption, and residential group care. The final section on case management/administration covers matters of general concern to all divisions of an agency providing child welfare services. Each checklist includes goals, performance indicator questions, objectives, and task achievement criteria questions. An agency's responses to these questions will indicate how actual agency outcomes in each service area compare with those that are generally considered best practice. (JMB)
