Performance Targets and Stability of Placements for Children Long Looked after Away from Home.
Ward, Harriet; Skuse, Tricia
Children & Society, v15 n5 p333-346 Nov 2001
A longitudinal study of 249 English children in out-of-home care demonstrated that improving the stability of placements is more likely if agencies can identify which children move frequently and why. Findings showed that the majority of moves were planned transitions from one temporary placement to another. Behavioral difficulties and absence of mental health support may have contributed to moves. (Author/KB)
