Subject:RE: Integrated Family Services Teams

A comment in response to the question from a program point of view. I

would postulate that the majority of county child welfare agencies in

the United States might be considered operating as an integrated family

services teams. In most rural counties, certainly in Louisiana, one

child welfare supervisor will supervise workers providing CPS, Family

Preservation, Foster Care and Adoptions services in a single unit out of

necessity. Additionally, there are some workers who may have to provide

services in different programs,simply because of population density or

shortages of other staff.



Depending on your focus, there may need to be an expansion or

contraction of the scope of the research question.

I am looking for research/information on both the positive and negative

impact of integrated family services teams - by which I mean having a

team of CPS, Foster Care and Adoptions workers all under one supervisor.

Thanks

Similar format, similar scales, and it has the

total/internalizing/externalizing higher-order scales that you are

seeking. Decent national population norms by age group and gender.

Teacher report, parent report and self report versions. One advantage of

the BASC is that the child self report paper-and-pencil version goes

down to age 8, and there is a child interview version for ages 6-7. When

you get down to age seven and under, the problems with self report

measures can get pretty bad, not to mention the reading issue.
