Fostering Families' and Children's Rights to Family Connections
Landsman, Miriam J.; Boel-Studt, Shamra
Child Welfare, v90 n4 p19-40 2011
Recent federal legislation strengthens children's and families' rights to family-centered practice by increasing the responsibility of child welfare agencies to identify and engage extended family members in providing care and support to children placed out of the home. Preliminary results from an experimental study of a federally funded family finding project found greater involvement of family, kin, and informal supports and a higher likelihood of reunification or relative placement compared with standard child welfare services. (Contains 4 tables.)
