Engaging Families in Child Welfare Services: Worker versus Client Perspectives
Altman, Julie Cooper
Child Welfare, v87 n3 p41-61 2008
Part of a larger mixed-method study of engagement in neighborhood-based child welfare services, the qualitative data this article reports on highlights the extent to which parents and workers differ in their views of engagement, the best ways to foster engagement in services, and the importance each group places on it as a process. Strategies designed to improve engagement are offered, including knowledge that can help workers interact more effectively with families and in so doing improve permanency for children. (Contains 1 table.)
