"[A] much needed resource that informs both the policy and the practice of family preservation." --Families in Society "This is a superb book--clearly written, comprehensive, thoughtful--one that should be read by all persons interested in learning more about family preservation services." --Community Alternative "Fraser, Recora, Haapala, and the contributors to this volume are among the pioneers and experts in family preservation services, a treatment approach designed to maintain family integrity when children are at risk of out-of-home placement. This work reports the outcome evaluation of a study designed in 1984 in which Intensive Family Preservation Services (IFPS) were provided to 453 families and 581 children in Utah and Washington. In a decade in which the child welfare community has struggled with initial decline in the early 1980s and the subsequent increase in the numbers of infants, children, and adolescents placed in foster and group homes, bold new approaches (including IFPS) have emerged as a "bright light" and have captured the interest of practitioners, administrators, policymakers, and professors. This book contributes to empirical research on family-based programs, such as that of Leonard Feldman and others. It is a must for all those who have a stake in making informed decisions about program design, clinical practice, model replication, future research, and shaping public policies to support family based services." --F.J.
