Child Welfare Outcome Research in the United States, The United Kingdom, and Australia

Maluccio, A. N.; Ainsworth, F.; Thoburn, J. Child Welfare League of America, Inc., Washington, DC. 2000. 151 pp. $14.95. Paperback.

Comparing outcomes of child welfare interventions is complex because different studies use differing outcome measures and various ways of describing processes, and include data on diverse groups of children with differing needs in assorted types of placement. Nevertheless, the authors review bodies of outcome research on child welfare programs in three countries so child welfare professionals can learn about many kinds of programs and strategies being used at home and abroad. Research topics include:

  • Kinship care
  • Adoption
  • Family preservation
  • Shared family care
  • Wraparound services

Selected texts are annotated in the appendix.
