Subject:Effectiveness of Assessment/Receiving Homes for Child Welfare

Dear all, I am looking for any literature that has explored the clinical rationale and/or effectiveness of assessment/receiving homes in child welfare, i.e., a parent-model staff-supported setting that provides assessment only for children upon admission to out-of-home care. In particular, I am looking for research has looked at this type of home where the placement is short-term, i.e., the child remains in the home for the assessment only, and either proceeds to reunifcation or another placement following the assessment. Any references are gratefully accepted. Many thanks, Kate Schumaker Catholic Children's Aid Society of Toronto
