Summary

Designed as a supplemental text, Child Welfare Case Studies consists of actual cases from the author's practice experience as a child welfare specialist.

The cases in child welfare studies were selected to introduce students to the variety of social problems facing families within the child welfare system. Each case is diverse and consists of multiple problems to ensure that students are challenged to think critically through the problem-solving process.

Students will learn how to apply social work knowledge and skills, how to apply the generalist perspective and how to analyze a case from engagement to termination. Child Welfare Case Studies offers faculty and practicing professionals a valuable resource in teaching helping skills as well as the general problem-solving process.

Features

  • All cases include multiple family dynamics since families that come to the attention of the child welfare system generally have numerous problems.
  • Students learn how to do a case analysis and work with a case using the basic problem-solving approach.
  • At the end of each case, there are opportunities for students to work with assessment tools (genograms and ecomaps), showing students that there are a variety of tools for assessing children and families with multiple problems.
  • Each case is diverse in a number of ways that are relevant to current social issues. Students learn the value of being culturally sensitive and seeing children and families as individuals.
