Wightman, Monica J.
Child Welfare, v70 n6 p653-64 Nov-Dec 1991
Explored the criteria for placement decisions used by child protection workers in three suburban Chicago counties with regard to infants who have been exposed to cocaine. Content analyses uncovered a complex decision-making process that demonstrated consistency across geographic regions. Several primary factors influenced decisions for in-home or out-of-home care for the infant. (Author/GLR)
