This issue of CW360° is dedicated to exploring holistic views of well-being with a strong emphasis on addressing unresolved trauma as a key to better outcomes for children, youth, and families. Throughout this publication you will find research, policy, and practice strategies that reflect the emerging aspects of this work today.
Articles include a summary of well-being frameworks, research, and definitions found in both research and practice as well as an overview of current federal initiatives and grants to address well-being among children in the child welfare system; practice models to address child and family well-being; examples of collaboration and cross-system partnerships; and perspectives from the field.
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.
