Lit Review Looks at Changes in CPS
Professionals can find out what changes are taking place in child protective services (CPS) systems around the country in a literature review released May 2001 by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, in cooperation with the Children's Bureau, Administration on Children, Youth and Families.
The review summarizes literature from the past 5 years that discusses CPS change objectives and initiatives. The review is organized into two sections: Proposals for Change and Demonstrations of New Approaches.
This literature review is part of a larger, ongoing study of State and county CPS systems and reform efforts aimed at informing the Federal government about the current status of CPS systems and improvements. Interviews with State administrators, surveys of county CPS agency staff, and site visits to innovative localities will be incorporated into a final report due in Fall 2002.
