Child Welfare Reform through Demonstration Research: Permanency Planning

Show Summary Details


The previous chapter examined the effectiveness of casework intervention to bring about change by reforming the individual client using case management, counseling, and therapeutic approaches. Although these approaches have failed to produce evidence of systematic change among clients, this should not lead to the conclusion that research has failed to identify effective methods of intervention. This chapter reviews demonstration research that examines the operation of the child welfare system from an organizational level. The interventions of this research were meant to change the operation of the system altogether in order to meet the needs of clients and to achieve policy goals.

Keywords: child welfare system; child welfare reform; system intervention; demonstration research
