Concurrent Planning and beyond: Family-Centered Services for Children in Foster Care
Hudson, Lucy; Almeida, Connie; Bentley, Dawn; Brown, Josie; Harlin, Daria; Norris, Judy
Zero to Three, v28 n6 p47-53 Jul 2008
Family reunification is not always possible for children who have been removed from the care of their biological parents because of abuse or neglect. Concurrent planning puts into place a secondary plan for a permanent home should family reunification prove to be impossible. Working in four diverse communities around the country in an innovative program that involves local judicial systems and community partners, the authors illustrate the importance of ongoing parental assessment and involvement, as well as the benefit of family teams, which support families as they try to overcome problems and move toward creating safe and permanent homes.
