Child Welfare Professionals' Attitudes toward Kinship Foster Care.
Beeman, Sandra; Boisen, Laura
Child Welfare, v78 n3 p315-37 May-Jun 1999
Surveyed 261 urban, metropolitan, and rural Minnesota child welfare professionals regarding their perceptions of kinship foster care. Found that most had generally positive perceptions of kinship foster parents' motivations and competence and of kinship foster care. Participants also believed that kinship placements were more difficult to supervise than nonkin placements, and that agencies needed to change practices and policies. (Author)
