Family reunification offers a potential route to permanency for looked after children, which is a key issue in contemporary social care. Reuniting Looked After Children with their Families offers policy-makers and practitioners a critical review of the research findings available in the UK and the USA, as well as a helpful guide to the problems and pitfalls in interpreting the research evidence.
This book assesses:
- the evidence on the key factors associated with the probability of reunification
- the research on the impact of child and parent characteristics, placement reasons, contact, motivation and the nature of social work services
- the evidence on the effectiveness of specialist reunification services in the USA
- the research on the outcomes of reunion, including studies which have reported on re-abuse, re-entry to care and psychosocial outcomes.
