Within a historical and contemporary context, this bookexamines major policy practice and research issues asthey jointly shape child welfare practice and its future.In addition to describing the major problems facing thefield, the book highlights service innovations that havebeen developed in recent years. The resulting picture isencouraging, especially if certain major program reformsare implemented and agencies are able to concentrateresources in a focused manner.The volume emphasizes families and children whoseprimary recourse to services has been through publiclyfunded child welfare agencies. The book considers historicalareas of service-foster care and adoptions, in-home family-centeredservices, child-protective services, and residentialservices-where social work has an important role.
