Social Work and Child Well-Being
Children's Bureau. Chibnall, Susan. To relate the findings presented here to practice and policy, it is first important to understand a few issues related to the current state of the child welfare system. Foremost is the growing recognition of the complex nature of society and the child welfare system's response to it. Designed as a temporary resource for troubled families, the child welfare system was never intended to provide the comprehensive range of social services that are demanded of it today. As increasing numbers of child welfare agencies have failed to meet the needs of the populations they serve, there is a growing recognition that the child welfare system alone cannot provide all of the services needed by the families and children who come into it. Poverty and an array of social problems as well as difficulties inherent in public child welfare systems have made it difficult to provide services to an increasingly diverse and troubled population.
Children of Color in the Child Welfare System: Perspectives from the Child Welfare Community
This article reports findings from the third part of a three-part research project examining the potential for social workers to shift from a child protection to a child welfare orientation in their practice. Whilst social workers in the UK have been encouraged to make such changes, they have been hampered by concerns to manage risk. Findings reported from the earlier parts of the project, indicated that there was potential for a substantial proportion of child protection work to be redesignated as child welfare work, but that where this was achieved in practice, there was evidence of the continued influence of child protection processes as social workers sought to manage the risks inherent in child welfare cases. The study reported here sets out to ascertain the views of parents who were subject to child welfare interventions. The findings indicate that while parents feel apprehension with regard to contact with social workers, in the majority of cases successful relationships are formed. It is argued that social workers display considerable skill in monitoring potential risks whilst engaging with families and that the subtleties involved in such activity are not captured by official measures of governance which concentrate on more abstract indicators of performance.

State and municipal governments and nongovernmental entities provide a broad range of social services designed to prevent or treat family violence. These services include counseling and advocacy for victims of abuse; family and caregiver support programs; alternative living arrangements, including out-of-home placement for children, protective guardianship for abused elders, and shelters for battered women; educational programs for those at risk of abusing or being abused; intensive service programs to maintain families at risk of losing their child; and individual service programs in both family and placement settings. Social service interventions may consist of casework as well as therapeutic services designed to provide parenting education, child and family counseling, and family support. Social service interventions also may include concrete services such as income support or material aid, institutional placement, mental health services, in-home health services, supervision, education, transportation, housing, medical services, legal services, in-home assistance, socialization, nutrition, and child and respite care. The scope and intensity of casework, therapeutic services, and concrete assistance to children and adults in family violence interventions are often not well documented, and they may vary within and between intervention programs.
Зато был другой голос, тот, что звал. Кто-то рядом с ним попытался его приподнять. Он потянулся к голосу. Или это его подвинули. Голос все звал его, а он безучастно смотрел на светящуюся картинку.
