Schoenberg, Carl, Ed.
This document presents the 1996 Child Welfare League of America (CWLA) standards based on current knowledge, children's developmental needs, and tested ways of meeting these needs most effectively.

The introduction presents a historical perspective on child welfare services. The chapters are: (1) "Core Values"; (2) "Organizational Establishment, Governance, and Administration"; (3)"Human Resources"; and (4) "Business Management, Marketing, and Resource Development."
