Description
"Schuerman et al. report on the largest randomized experiment available on family preservation services. Conducted by staff at the University of Chicago, the two-year experiment involved almost 1,600 families (995 in family preservation service and 569 in regular service) in six regions of Illinois... [T]he work is a model for evaluation of large social programs. Its careful design, thorough analysis, and balanced discussion combine rigorous scholarly honesty with practical ideas for program development. Essential for academic libraries. Upper-division undergraduates and above." --M. E. Elwell, Choice "This book would be of considerable interest to individuals interested in the design, implementation, and evaluation of large-scale child abuse and neglect treatment programs. It provides useful information on the context of the development of family preservation programs as well as on their effectiveness. It also provides some insights into the importance of using randomized control groups in the evaluation of child welfare intervention strategies." --Michael J. Martin, Journal of Marriage and Family "[A]n elegant and challenging analysis of family preservation programs based on the largest and most rigorous evaluation yet done. The book's treatment of the philosophical, scientific, and sociopolitical issues involved in the development of family preservation will enlighten child welfare specialists." --Richard P. Barth, University of California, Berkeley
