Understanding Children and Families Served by the Child Welfare System
This chapter reviews the case records of 100 randomly selected infants who were placed in foster care in the first year of their lives to learn about the family situations that typify the cases of young children. It focuses on children and families who might be characterized as the most successful by conventional indicators of performance in child welfare services. A summary of key findings and recommendations regarding the children and families served by the child welfare services system is presented at the end of the chapter.
