Contemporary Issues in Permanency Planning: A Special Issue of CWLA's Child Welfare Journal
This book, originally published as a special issue of the journal Child Welfare with funding from The Hite Foundation, comprehensively examines permanency planning for children in out-of-home care. Permanency planning is intended to ease the feelings of grief, loss, and uncertainty experienced by children and families involved with the foster care system. The research included here addresses many practitioner aspects of permanency planning, including visitation, tress, diversity, substance abuse, and termination of parental rights. It also includes evaluations of three programs that help increase permanency for children, explores parenting classes from the point of view of two teachers (one African American and one white), and addresses the fear and danger that gay and lesbian teens in out-of-home care live with daily.
