Free text Focuses on the theory and practice of permanency planning for children and youth; presents a permanency planning framework for child welfare practice; discusses the philosophy and theory underlying permanency planning; delineates a systematic practice approach; identifies and illustrates practice guidelines. Since decision-making by child welfare personnel, judges, parents and others is at the heart of permanency planning, this book emphasizes the decision-making process. It stresses those concepts and principles, program components, methods and techniques that promote appropriate decision-making, facilitate acting on decisions, and encourage alternative strategies when a given decision cannot be implemented. Difficulties in implementing permanency planning are also given attention, as are issues of socio-cultural, ethnic and racial diversity.
