Free text The intention of this book is to assist managers and practitioners in family and childcare social work to make decisions based on sound evidence about where to place children and what sort of practice is likely to bring about the desired outcomes for children, birth relatives, foster carers and the adoptive families. It is not a research summary. It is more a guide to what has been learned from research about what appears to work best in family placement. Three specific questions are addressed: 1.What does research indicate are the factors likely to be associated with positive outcomes? 2.How can practice be evaluated and what outcomes measures can be used? 3.What does research not tell us, or where are the messages from research unclear or contradictory? The book is illustrated with case studies. It is a revised edition of the version first edited in 1994.
