Leslie T. Foster, Brian Wharf. People, Politics, and Child Welfare in British Columbia traces the evolution of policies and programs intended to protect children in BC from neglect and abuse.

Leslie T. Analyzing this evolution reveals that child protection policy and practice has reflected the priorities of politicians and public servants in power. With few exceptions, efforts to establish effective programs have focused on structural arrangements, staffing responsibilities, and rules to regulate the practice of child welfare workers.

Assessment in child welfare involves at least two distinct processes: an assessment of risk (prediction of future harm) and a contextual assessment of child and family functioning used to develop case plans. Both types of assessment are critical decision aids, yet there has been confusion in the field about their respective uses. Actuarial risk assessment instruments clearly have the greatest potential to reliably and accurately estimate the recurrence of child maltreatment.

People, Politics, and Child Welfare in British Columbia.

Apparently welfare is looking into his child support payments I also realize that it IS his child and he should pay and he does pay, on time, in full, every month, even though she moved out of town (a 10 hour trip) and we can't afford to ever.

People, Politics, and Child Welfare in British Columbia traces the evolution of policies and programs intended to protect children in BC from neglect and abuse. Analyzing this evolution reveals that child protection policy and practice has reflected the priorities of politicians and public servants in power. With few exceptions, efforts to establish effective programs have focused on structural arrangements, staffing responsibilities, and rules to regulate the practice of child welfare workers.Contributors to this book conclude that these attempts have been unsuccessful thus far because they have failed to address the impact of poverty on clients. The need to respect the cultural traditions and values of First Nations clients has also been ignored. Effective services require recognizing and remedying poverty’s impact, establishing community control over services, and developing a radically different approach to the day-to-day practice of child welfare workers.People, Politics, and Child Welfare in British Columbia provides a crucial assessment of the state of child welfare in the province. Practitioners, scholars, and students in social work, child and youth care, education, and other human-service professions will find this book particularly important.
