About this item

Kinship care is one of the most prevalent forms of placement used for maltreated children and youths. This book is the first to provide a systematic and theory-informed approach to preparing caregivers for the vital role they play in the lives of abused and neglected children. It presents a relationship-building framework that can be used to better achieve the three major child welfare goals: (1) protection,(2) permanency,and (3) well-being. Child welfare students and practitioners will learn evidence-based practice and policy strategies that foster attachment, identity, and belongingness in children, enabling the children to reconnect and establish important relationships and social supports that are vital to their development.
