"Permanency planning, the child welfare revolution of the 1970s and '80s, sought to end the limbo and drift that so many children in foster care experienced. Barth and his colleagues (all at the Univ. of California, Berkeley, except Courtney, Univ. of Wisconsin, Madison) report findings from a large-scale California study that investigated the extent to which the promise of permanency planning is being fulfilled... An important contribution to the literature on child welfare, recommended for scholars and policy makers as well as administrators and practitioners in the field." --B. A. Pine, Choice "The authors use data from California's child welfare system to explore current trends in service delivery as they reflect the permanency planning mandate of the Adoption Assistance and Child Welfare Act of 1980... As this instructive volume makes clear, until the child welfare system becomes a family welfare system, it is folly to hope for a significant increase in permanency for children." --Martha Morrison Dore, Journal of Marriage and the Family "This book arises from the work of the Berkeley Child Welfare Research Center... Its considerable strengths lie in the quality, range and substance of the data it has gathered, analysed and synthesized." --Ian Butler, International Social Work "If we want to enhance the lives of children and families we touch, then we must fill the gaps in our knowledge about what happens to them in the child welfare system. The authors of From Child Abuse to Permanency Planning have made an important contribution to improving outcomes for children and families by expanding out knowledge of the current paths taken by some children from report, to placements, to discharge." --Kathy Barbell, Child Welfare
