Exploring Child Welfare: A Practice Perspective

Pearson A and B, 2007 - 458 páginas
Overview: Exploring Child Welfare provides an overall look at the provision of services for children and their families, from services that enhance and support family life to those that substitute for the child's own home. The Fourth Edition of this accessible and engaging text continues to reflect the author's strong practice perspective and incorporates new developments in welfare reform and child welfare services. The author bases her work on more than 30 years of experience in almost all areas of children's services, including protective services, foster care, adoption, court services, residential treatment and school-based services. What Reviewers Are Saying: ""[The writing style] is probably the number one reason I choose this textbook. I especially like the way [the author] incorporate[s] the case studies into the chapter. This allows the students to easily make the connection between the material presented and "real life." I have not had a student complain about reading this text!!"" -Sandy Cook-Fong, University of Nebraska at Kearney " " ""The text examples/cases are candid representations of child welfare systems, client and/or service circumstances, and other valuable case histories that provide students the ability to develop professional competence and personal integrity....As an instructor and professional within the human service field, this text has become a valuable reference and resource tool for myself and my students."" -Kathleen M. Gutowski, Baker College ""Strengths: accessibility of material, suitability for BSW [students], cases geared to generalist agency practice, comprehensive, but not overwhelming, holistic orientation." " -Karen A. Ford, James Madison University [ Insert MyHelpingLab Advertisement ]
