CWLA Press is pleased to present our latest signature publication, the six-part Child and Family-Serving Systems: Compendium of Policy & Practice (Ramona Denby-Brinson, UNC School of Social Work, and Charlene Ingram, CWLA, editors).

This collection—essential to educators in social work and allied fields, and to child- and family-serving professionals such as health care practitioners, mental health care practitioners, legal personnel, state and local child welfare staff, and others—explores practice approaches, program implementation, policy analysis, and evaluation and research components of child welfare.
