There is mounting interest in services to strengthen families and, if possible, to keep them together, preventing unnecessary and costly out-of-home placements. Unfortunately, although these programs are proliferating throughout the country, many are developing without the benefit of existing historical, conceptual, and scholarly data, information needed to make sound fiscal policy and programmatic decisions. This book fills this critical void, with a systematic examination of home-based services for abused, neglected, delinquent, and emotionally disturbed children and their families. With the most authoritative research on the topic to date, this book will be of interest to practitioners, policymakers, and child advocates.
