The number of children of color entering the child welfare system in the United States is disproportionately high. Not only are children of color removed from parental custody and placed in care more often than their white counterparts, but they also remain in care longer, receive fewer services, and have less contact with the caseworkers assigned to them.

This book identifies the practice and policy changes required to successfully address the unequal treatment of children of color in the child welfare system and their implications for social work education, caseworker training, and institutional change. It critiques many of the existing social welfare acts and policies in terms of their treatment of children of color, and it provides best practices for each decision point in the child welfare process and for cultural competency measures and training. The text offers extensive measurement instruments that agencies can use to assess and correct institutional racism. To improve social work education, the book includes several model syllabi for the curriculum, and to deepen the discipline's engagement with the issue of institutional racism, the text concludes with a discussion of future directions for research and policy.

About the Author:

Marian S. Harris is an associate professor of social work at the University of Washington Tacoma and a former Faculty Associate at the Chapin Hall Center for Children at the University of Chicago. Her research focuses on child welfare issues, including disproportionality. She was a key participant in the U.S. Children's Bureau's research roundtable on the topic, has testified before the Ways and Means committee, and is cochair of the Washington State Racial Disproportionality Advisory Committee.

Review:

Marian S. Harris has produced a vade mecum for an area of child welfare that has been overlooked too long. Addressing policy, practices, systems, and curricular issues, her book is comprehensive in its coverage and, most important, in its guidance. An entire chapter devoted to international perspectives is particularly welcome. Without question Harris's book will be embraced by thought leaders, educators, policymakers, and practitioners. It is destined to change our understanding and approach to racial inequities in child welfare. (Steve Schinke, Columbia University School of Social Work)

The disparities in the treatment of children of color and their families in the child welfare system are a critical concern for the field and for anyone who wants to address the well-being of children. Dr. Marian Harris has written a comprehensive and definitive book for academics, policymakers, practitioners, students, and caring citizens. Her work engages and educates the reader by providing essential information and resource tools. It uniquely presents the voices of parents, children, and professionals to humanize their experiences and illuminate the difficulties that must be overcome. Dr. Harris skillfully equips each of us to be able to contribute to improving the circumstances for children of color in the child welfare system. (Ada Skyles, Associate Director, Chapin Hall Center for Children, University of Chicago)

a welcome edition to the literature on a topic of continued importance to the field of child welfare. (PsycCritiques)
