Volume II, "Case Planning and Family-Centered Casework," covers: (4) "Case Planning and Family-Centered Casework"; and (5) "Culture and Diversity in Child Welfare Practice." Volume III, "Child Development and Child Welfare," covers: (6) "The Effects of Abuse and Neglect on Child Development"; and (7) "Child Welfare Services for Children with Developmental Disabilities."
