The Future of Social Work in Child Welfare
Keywords: Child welfare, outcomes, evidence-based practice
AbstractChild welfare has been a volatile and dynamic field of social work practice where policy and practice are continually shaped by attitudes, perceptions and expectations. New developments likely to shift the current balance in the field of child welfare over the next quarter century include: focus on results and performance measures, focus on child and family well-being, and increasing attention to evidence based practice.
