Subject:RE: Family Preservation focus and Child Protection focus

Dear Paul, A number of faculty at the Kempe Center (in particular Dr. John Fluke) was a good colleague of Len Dagleish, and we have used his scale (I think in its entirety) in a number of child welfare evaluations. I will look for the complete scale and send it to you.

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.
