Subject:Family Preservation focus and Child Protection focus

In 1999 Dr Len Dalgleish approached this group about child protection practitioners views on what constitutes a child protection focus and family preservation focus in child protection decision making. He asked for replies to the questions below. From the replies he developed a questionnaire. Unfortunately Len passed away a couple of years ago, and the questionnaire was never published. A few items of the questionnaire remain from a workshop he presented. I worked with Len and would like to recreate the questionnaire with updated items for research I am doing. I would very much appreciate it if you could answer the questions below and send your replies to me. warm regards, Paul. *********************************************** 1.
