The New Miracle Workers: Overcoming Contemporary Challenges in Child Welfare WorkBy:
At the same time that resources have become increasingly strained, The New Miracle Workers compiles information gathered from more than 100 child welfare workers to address major issues facing practitioners today, including violence, substance abuse, and obesity. Equally important, recent neuroscience research has given us radical, new information on the human brain; the author discusses how that information impacts new and future child welfare practice. This guidebook also offers real strategies to deal with contemporary problems, including preventing burnout and other workplace problems, promoting cultural competency, and making agencies accountable for their actions. The New Miracle Workers will help all child welfare workers who are struggling with new challenges and need practical ways to handle the strain of working in child welfare today.
