Center for Advanced Studies on Child Welfare (CASCW), School of Social Work, College of Education and Human Development, University of Minnesota
Continuing the exploration of the intersection of child welfare and disability, this issue focuses on the experiences of parents with disabilities and mental illness (MI) in the child welfare system.
Articles include an overview of the prevalence and population of parents with disabilities and MI in child welfare, practice strategies and policy recommendations for supporting parents with disabilities and MI, and innovative examples of collaboration and communication across systems.
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.
