Subject:Impact of having multiple professionals involved in a case

The impact on children is dependent on how multiple professionals are involved. In the Safe Babies Court Team approach, which focuses on infants and toddlers in foster care, the professionals, the parents, extended family and important friends, foster parents, and CASA volunteers create a family team. They come together in support of the family to help the child reach safe nurturing permanency as quickly as possible, hopefully by returning to the custody of the parents. And our children have been shown to reach permanency about a year faster than a comparison group drawn from the National Survey of Child and Adolescent Well-Being. Information on the SBCT approach can be found at www.zerotothree.org and at www.qicct.org . Lucy Hudson, M.S.

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. Rose Marie Wentz Consultant and Trainer Rose@wentztraining.com
