Kinship Care: Increasing Child Well-Being Through Practice, Policy, and Research by Ramona W. MSW LSW ACSW Denby PhD

Kinship care is one of the most prevalent forms of placement used for maltreated children and youths. This book is the first to provide a systematic and theory-informed approach to preparing caregivers for the vital role they play in the lives of abused and neglected children. It presents a relationship-building framework that can be used to better achieve the three major child welfare goals: (1) protection, (2) permanency, and (3) well-being. Child welfare students and practitioners will learn evidence-based practice and policy strategies that foster attachment, identity, and belongingness in children, enabling the children to reconnect and establish important relationships and social supports that are vital to their development.

The text traces the historical development of kinship care and describes the current knowledge base-both theoretical and practical-about this form of child placement. It discusses the political, social, cultural, and economic contexts of kinship care and how policies can be reshaped to better support the kinship paradigm. A variety of options for kinship relationships are explored along with strategies to assure child safety within kinship care. Case examples throughout illustrate the practical application of strategies and policy approaches.
