Summary

This text presents a model of practice that stems from the goodness-of-fit between the child's needs (physical, developmental, social-emotional) and the parent's ability to adequately meet those needs according to the prevailing norms of society. Samantrai integrates policy, human behavior theories, issues in practice, skills of practice, multiculturalism, child abuse and neglect, and she develops and refines these concepts into the skills specifically needed by those working in public child welfare.

Benefits:

  • Case examples in Chapters 4, 5, 6, and 7 illustrate the goodness-of-fit model.
  • The book's model integrates policy, human behavior theories, practice, and research.
  • The text addresses five competency areas identified by CalSWEC (the California Social Work Education Center): ethnic-sensitive and multicultural practice; core child welfare skills; human behavior and the social environment; workplace management; and child welfare policy, planning and administration.
  • A practice exercise and discussion points appear at the end of each chapter.
