Subject:Re: Impact of having multiple professionals involved in a case

The Milwaukee study can be found at: http://www.uh.edu/socialwork/_docs/cwep/national-iv-e/turnoverstudy.pdf It is looking at child welfare case worker turnover. It does not relate to the array of professionals, volunteers, etc. that might be working with a family. The Milwaukee study is cited in the recent Governing article about worker turnover and also was used by Children's Bureau and ACYF staff over the last year as one piece of research that highlights the need to attend to the workforce and reduce worker turnover.

Example: A long term foster care case where the children have experienced multiple agency social workers, therapists, visitation supervisors, evaluators, CASA or attorneys. Is there any research how the child views these adults? If there is research on how having multiple professionals involved in the case impacts the outcome of the case or the progress of the case? I believe there is research on the impact of changing agency social workers but I have not been able to locate that research.
