Children's Bureau Express: March 2018

Children's Bureau Express: March 2018 Edition Alert includes a Spotlight on In-Home Services:

In-home services prioritize family preservation and include community-based and family-focused interventions that aim to keep children safely in their homes. This month's CBX highlights a new book centered on the Homebuilder's model, an in-home intervention that provides families with counseling, life skills education, and other tools geared toward family preservation; an article that describes an evaluation of the Boys Town In-Home Family Services model; an article that discusses whether a referral to family group conferencing was associated with improved outcomes for families involved with child welfare; and a study that focuses on the differences in child well-being among children investigated for maltreatment who remained at home with a substance-using caregiver compared with children investigated for maltreatment without a substance-using caregiver in the home.
