Finnish Children in Foster Care: Evaluating the Breakdown of Long-Term Placements.
Kalland, Mirjam; Sinkkonen, Jari
Child Welfare, v80 n5 p513-27 Sep-Oct 2001
Investigated risk factors associated with placement disruption or breakdown in long-term foster care cases in Finland. Most children were placed in foster care due to neglect; follow-up occurred at an average of 4 years and 2 months after placement. Found correlation between placement breakdown and foster parents' having birth children, and controversy over considering parent reunification as "placement failure." (JPB)
