9780415947275: Fixing Families: Parents, Power, and the Child Welfare System

In Fixing Families, Jennifer Reich takes us inside Child Protective Services for an in-depth look at the entire organization. Following families from the beginning of a case to its discharge, Reich shows how parents negotiate with the state for custody of their children, and how being held accountable to the state affects a family.

From the Publisher:

With the wisdom of a Solomon, but with far more intellectual nuance, patience, and compassion, Jennifer Reich explores how agents of the state adjudicate the fate of parents whose children have been identified as needing protective services. With rare sympathy for all the unhappy actors in these traumatic conflicts–children, mothers, fathers, relatives, social workers, lawyers, and family judges–Reich moves beyond the easy bromides about saving children or saving families. She shows how fixed notions of family impede efforts to help families in a fix. Fixing Families is the book Solomon would have written if he were a gifted sociologist. -Judith Stacey, Professor of Sociology, New York University Author, In the Name of The Family: Rethinking Family Values in the Postmodern Age

About the Author:

Jennifer A. Reich is Assistant Professor in the Department of Sociology and Criminology at the University of Denver.
