Child Welfare Research and Training: A Response to David Stoesz
Smith, Brenda D.; Vandiver, Vikki L.
Research on Social Work Practice, v26 n5 p515-518 Sep 2016
In this response to David Stoesz' critique, "The Child Welfare Cartel," the authors agree that child welfare research and training must be improved. The authors disagree, however, with Stoesz' critique of social work education, his assessment of the most-needed forms of child welfare research, and his depiction of the goals and activities of the National Child Welfare Workforce Institute (NCWWI). Rather than contributing to child welfare challenges and problems, the authors argue that the NCWWI is leading efforts to address the challenges.
