Review:

 

Child Welfare and Family Services: Policies and Practice, 8/e

Susan Whitelaw Downs, Wayne State University

Ernestine Moore, Wayne State University

Basic Approach:

 

This thorough revision of Child Welfare and Family Services reflects current issues, controversies, and innovative practice methods in both family and child services.  It also provides a strong historical context to current programs, issues, and policy decisions; as well as in-depth information on legal and legislative frameworks.  Excellent coverage of theories related to child welfare practice are covered; including the ecological perspective, social learning theory, attachment theory, and the risk and resilience perspective

 

New to this edition:

  • A new chapter titled Professional Responsibilities: Ethics and Advocacy (Ch. 12), covers a variety of professional issues in child welfare from legal and practice perspectives
  • Expanded coverage of child welfare practice, including a new chapter devoted to the fundamentals of practice (Ch. 4)
  • Applies and explains legal skills that all child welfare practice professionals need for the field (Ch.6)
  • Contains a new model combining family continuity and concurrent planning  (Ch.9)
  • New charts, tables, and cases in the text act as handy references to students - for everything from federal legislation and juvenile justice, to child outcome accountability and advocacy techniques
  • New case examples examine current issues in child welfare such as legal liability, burn out, and advocacy for policy change
  • Up-to-date, accurate and clear discussion of federal programs and policies that affect families and children, with honest assessments of the effectiveness of these policies, including an in depth discussion of welfare reform and its effects on families and children

What your colleagues are saying:

This text is a wonderful classroom tool. It can be used to facilitate dialogue, as well as assist students in understanding basic child welfare content. It is very thorough and easy to digest. This is important for students, particularly those who may be new to child welfare.

-- Monique Busch  Indiana University

This text is by far the best I have found for a general survey course in Child Welfare.  The strength of this text is its emphasis on the macro level of child welfare. It is important to me to place the field of child welfare in the context of larger cultural, social and political trends.

-- Dale Weaver, California State University--Los Angeles
