Where Children Live: Solutions for Serving Young Children and Their Families. Advances in Applied Developmental Psychology, Volume 17.
Roberts, Richard N., Ed.; Magrab, Phyllis R., Ed.
The changing nature of communities necessitates a comprehensive theoretical model for effective delivery of child and family services. This edited volume provides a context for and examples of an emerging paradigm shift in human services toward one in which services for families with young children are provided in their communities. Section 1 of the volume defines community and delineates principles for community-based programs. Section 2 illustrates critical support elements, coalitions of community-based programs, funding models, and the use of evaluation to guide program growth. Section 3 gives examples of a developmental perspective in mental health services, while section 4 provides examples of community support in action.
