Published Date

CASCW’s first collaborative issue highlights the challenge of providing services appropriately tailored to the developmental ages of the children served by child welfare. Articles include research on early childhood development and maltreatment, policy issues related to children birth to five in the child welfare system, and practice points for addressing early childhood experiences of trauma and abuse.



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.
