Subject:RE: intergenerational CPS involvement

Hi Kristen, NSCAW asks this question as part of the risk assessment that is completed during the child welfare worker interview. Estimates according to this were 13-21% of primary and secondary caregivers currently involved with CWS. However, I was involved in another study that asks caregivers both whether they were involved with child welfare as children, and whether they spent time in out of home care. According to these results, the range is closer to one-half (involved) and one-quarter (OOH care). This is available through the Pennsylvania Child Welfare Training Program, and includes caregivers of very young children only. If you send me an email, I can forward you more details and contacts.
