The volume emphasizes families and children whose primary recourse to services is through publicly-funded child welfare agencies. The book considers historical areas of service: foster care and adoptions, in-home family-centered services, child-protective services, and residential services—where social work has an important role. This new edition will serve as a fundamental introduction for new practitioners, as well as a summary of recent developments for experienced policymakers, administrators, and practitioners.
