Summary: Child Welfare Social Work is a brief, introductory text for child welfare courses covering the most important policy and practice issues.


  • Brief (aproxx. 300 pages) and organized into twelve chapters that roughly follow the twelve weeks in a semester, the text provides reasonable reading requirements for students.
  • A strong risk assessment chapter (Ch. 4) covers one of the k moreey current issues in child welfare practice, including discussion of false positives and negatives and review of research in the subject area.
  • An excellent chapter on the child welfare worker (Ch. 10) based on the ethnography of a child welfare office gives students an actual feel for the job of a child welfare social worker.
  • Excellent coverage of therapeutic foster care (Ch. 8) including discussion of the reunification decision, termination of parental rights, and the ramifications for children. The increasing number of foster care placements makes this a key issue in child welfare social work.
  • Exceptional coverage of inter-professional issues (Ch. 11) includes discussion of the role of judges, attorneys, guardians, special advocates, probation officers, etc.
  • Frequent cases and vignettes throughout the text help students relate to the "stories" of each specific example.
  • A strong history chapter (Ch. 2), including recent developments, provides a fundamental understanding of the field that the child welfare social worker cannot enter the field without. less
