Predictors of Short-Term Reunification in South Australian Substitute Care.
Delfabbro, Paul; Barber, James; Cooper, Lesley
Child Welfare, v82 n1 p27-51 Jan-Feb 2003
This study examined factors contributing to short-term reunification for 235 children placed in South Australian substitute care from 1998 to 1999. Findings indicated that non-Aboriginal children and those placed because of parental incapacity were significantly more likely to go home, than neglected and Aboriginal children. Detailed profile analyses highlighted specific case characteristics or changes thought to contribute to reunification in each case. (Author/KB)
