Child welfare professionals face unique challenges such as secondary trauma as they undertake the day-to-day work of providing safety and stability to families.
Articles include research on secondary traumatic stress and how outside influences can impact work, ways of preventing and intervening from an individual to organizational to policy level, and examples of cross-system collaborations and strategies for practice improvements.
Child Welfare 360° (CW360°) is an annual publication that provides communities, child welfare professionals, and other human service professionals, comprehensive information on the latest research, policies and practices in a key area affecting child well-being today. The publication uses a multidisciplinary approach for its robust examination of an important issue in child welfare practice and invites articles from key stakeholders, including families, caregivers, service providers, a broad array of child welfare professionals (including educators, legal professionals, medical professionals and others), and researchers. Social issues are not one dimensional and cannot be addressed from a single vantage point. We hope that reading CW360° enhances the delivery of child welfare services across the country while working towards safety, permanency and well-being for all children and families being served.
