From the Publisher"This book has tremendous value to the field of child welfare; it has the highest quality research and the results have critical implications for policy and practice." —Norma Harris, Research Professor and Director of Social Research Institute, College of Social Work, University of Utah
"Finally, we have an acknowledgement of the reality of long-term foster care and the need to plan for lifetime outcomes from the very start of the substitute care placement. This work brings us closer to a time when we no longer have to sacrifice well-being on the altar of safety and permanency." —Erwin McEwen, Director, Illinois Department of Children and Family Services
"What Works in Foster Care? offers many original insights that cannot be found in existing works on the topic of family foster care. Its methodology is sophisticated, and the book does an admirable job of making this material accessible to a general audience."
—Mark Testa, Director of the Children and Family Research Center and Associate Professor, School of Social Work, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
