Local Child Welfare Services Self-Assessment Manual: Part II - Resources. (Revised Edition).
Homan, Carolyn Clark; And Others
This compilation of resource materials was designed to facilitate internal agency improvements by providing a convenient and efficient framework for self-assessment of child welfare services. Resource materials 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 describe 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 section highlights related research findings and provides a bibliography. (JMB)
