The role of domestic factors and day-care attendance on lung function of primary school children. (1/1572)

The results of studies examining the relationship of domestic factors to lung function are contradictory. We therefore examined the independent effects of maternal smoking during pregnancy, exposure to environmental tobacco smoke (ETS), the presence of a cat, type of heating and cooking used in the home and day-care attendance on lung function after controlling for socioeconomic status (SES). Nine hundred and eighty-nine children from 18 Montreal schools were studied between April 1990 and November 1992. Information on the child's health and exposure to domestic factors was collected by questionnaire. Spirometry was performed at school. The data were analysed by multiple linear regression with percent predicted FEV1, FVC, and FEV1/FVC as dependent variables. In the overall sample (both sexes combined), cat in the home (regression coefficient, beta = -1.15, 95% confidence interval, CI: -2.26-(-)0.05) and electric baseboard units (beta = -1.26, 95% CI: -2.39-(-)0.13) were independently associated with a lower FEV1/FVC, while day-care attendance (beta = -2.05, 95% CI: -3.71-(-)0.40) significantly reduced FEV1. Household ETS was significantly associated with increasing level of FVC (beta = 2.86, 95% CI: +0.55 to +5.17). In boys but not girls, household ETS (beta = -2.13, 95% CI: -4.07-(-)0.19) and the presence of a cat (beta = -2.19, 95% CI: -3.94-(-)0.45) were associated with lower FEV1/FVC. By contrast, day-care attendance was associated with lower FEV1 (beta = -2.92, 95% CI: -5.27-(-)0.56) and FEV1/FVC (beta = -1.53, 95% CI: -2.73-(-)0.33) in girls only. In conclusion, the results provide evidence that domestic factors and day-care attendance primarily affected airway caliber and gender differences were apparent in the effects of these factors.  (+info)

A management information system for nurse/midwives. (2/1572)

Developing communality: family-centered programs to improve children's health and well-being. (3/1572)

Despite decades of enormous investment in research and public programs, the United States continues to face pandemics of preventable health problems such as low birth weight, teenage pregnancy, drug abuse, and interpersonal violence. With some justification, these problems have been blamed on the failings of families. The reasons why families may function poorly in their child-rearing roles have not been coherently or vigorously addressed by our social policies; sometimes these policies have aggravated the problems. This paper provides background to allow a better understanding of families' role in the social determination of children's health, and argues for programs and policies that assist families through the creation of social supports embedded in communities that are characterized by trust and mutual obligation.  (+info)

The determinants of infant and child mortality in Tanzania. (4/1572)

This paper investigates the determinants of infant and child mortality in Tanzania using the 1991/92 Tanzania Demographic and Health Survey. A hazards model is used to assess the relative effect of the variables hypothesized to influence under-five mortality. Short birth intervals, teenage pregnancies and previous child deaths are associated with increased risk of death. The Government of the United Republic of Tanzania should therefore maintain its commitment to encouraging women to space their births at least two years apart and delay childbearing beyond the teenage years. Further, this study shows that there is a remarkable lack of infant and child mortality differentials by socioeconomic subgroups of the population, which may reflect post-independence health policy and development strategies. Whilst lack of socioeconomic differentials can be considered an achievement of government policies, mortality remains high so there is still a long way to go before Tanzania achieves its stated goal of 'Health for All'.  (+info)

Childcare needs of female street vendors in Mexico City. (5/1572)

This article reports on strategies developed by female street vendors (vendedoras ambulantes) in Mexico City to ensure the care of their young children in the absence of a specific and operational government policy to fulfil this need. The information concerning child care and health was gathered by a survey of 426 street traders selected by multi-stage random cluster sampling in four of the administrative districts (delegaciones politicas) of Mexico City during 1990. It was found that, as mothers of young children, street vendors most frequently looked after their children personally on the street or left them with other members of the family. Related factors were availability of alternative child care providers in the family, the age of the children and working conditions of the mother. Children who remained on the streets with their mothers suffered more frequently from gastro-intestinal diseases and accidents than the national average. The incidence of acute respiratory diseases, however, was similar in the cases of maternal care in the street and care by family members in another environment. Existing public health measures show a greater concern for the health of food consumers than that of workers in this area. Current public policy seeks to regulate street vending activities and to concentrate traders in ad hoc areas and facilities. Our research results document the need for actions that can contribute to an improvement in the care and health conditions of these young children.  (+info)

Dirt and diarrhoea: formative research in hygiene promotion programmes. (6/1572)

Investment in the promotion of better hygiene for the prevention of diarrhoeal diseases and as a component of water and sanitation programmes is increasing. Before designing programmes capable of sustainably modifying hygiene behaviour in large populations, valid answers to a number of basic questions concerning the site and the intended beneficiaries have to be obtained. Such questions include 'what practices favour the transmission of enteric pathogens?', 'what advantages will be perceived by those who adopt safe practices?' and 'what channels of communication are currently employed by the target population?' A study of hygiene and diarrhoea in Bobo-Dioulasso, Burkina Faso, used a mixture of methods to address such questions. This paper draws on that experience to propose a plan of preliminary research using a variety of techniques which could be implemented over a period of a few months by planners of hygiene promotion programmes. The techniques discussed include structured observation, focus group discussions and behavioural trials. Modest investment in such systematic formative research with clear and limited goals is likely to be repaid many times over in the increased effectiveness of hygiene promotion programmes.  (+info)

The census-based, impact-oriented approach: its effectiveness in promoting child health in Bolivia. (7/1572)

This paper describes the effectiveness for child health of a primary health care approach developed in Bolivia by Andean Rural Health Care and its colleagues, the census-based, impact-oriented (CBIO) approach. Here, we describe selected achievements, including child survival service coverage, mortality impact, and the level of resources required to attain these results. As a result of first identifying the entire programme population through visits at least biannually to all homes and then targeting selected high-impact services to those at highest risk of death, the mortality levels of children under five years of age in the established programme areas was one-third to one-half of mortality levels in comparison areas. Card-documented coverage for the complete series of all the standard six childhood immunizations among children 12-23 months of age was 78%, and card-documented coverage for three nutritional monitorings during the previous 12 months among the same group of children was 80%. Coverage rates in comparison areas for similar services was less than 21%. The local annual recurring cost of this approach was US $8.57 for each person (of all ages) in the programme population. This cost includes the provision of primary care services for all age groups as well as targeted child survival services. This cost is well within the affordable range for many, if not most, developing countries. Manpower costs for field staff in Bolivia are relatively high, so in countries with lower salary scales, the overall recurring cost could be substantially less. An Expert Review Panel reviewed the CBIO approach and found it to be worthy of replication, particularly if stronger community involvement and greater reliance on volunteer or minimally paid staff could be attained. The results of this approach are sufficiently promising to merit implementation and evaluation in other sites, including sites beyond Bolivia.  (+info)

Injury control strategies: extending the quality and quantity of data relating to road traffic accidents in children. (8/1572)

This review describes how an extended database of information can provide the opportunity to go beyond the traditionally distinct health, engineering, and education initiatives in order to identify the effectiveness of more overarching policies for injury control. Such information can be used to raise awareness and to encourage community participation in designing a road traffic accident prevention strategy.  (+info)

The landmark National Survey of Child and Adolescent Well-Being (NSCAW) study represents the first effort to gather nationally representative data, based on first-hand reports, about the well-being of children and families who encounter the child welfare system. NSCAWs findings offer an unprecedented national source of data that describe the developmental status and functional characteristics of children who come to the attention of child protective services. Much more than a simple history of placements or length of stay in foster care, NSCAW data chart the trajectory of families across service pathways for a multi-dimensional view of their specific needs. The NSCAW survey is longitudinal, contains direct assessments and reports about each child from multiple sources, and is designed to address questions of relations among childrens characteristics and experiences, their development, their pathways through the child welfare service system, their service needs, their service receipt, and ultimately,
The effects of National Health Insurance Scheme in Ghana and its impact on child health outcome and service utilization cannot be underestimated. Despite the tremendous improvement in child health care in Ghana, there are still some challenges in relation to how National health insurance membership, socioeconomic status and other demographic factors impacts on child health outcomes. The study seeks to determine the association between NHIS membership, socio-economic status, geographic location and other relevant background factors, on child health service utilization and outcomes. Secondary data from the Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey conducted in 2011 was used. Multivariate analysis based on Binary Logistic Regression Models and Multiple linear regression techniques was applied to determine factors associated with child health outcomes and service utilization. Collection of best models was based on Hosmer-Lemeshow Goodness-Of-Fit as one criterion of fit and the Akaike Information Criterion.
Definition of Indian Child Welfare Act in the Legal Dictionary - by Free online English dictionary and encyclopedia. What is Indian Child Welfare Act? Meaning of Indian Child Welfare Act as a legal term. What does Indian Child Welfare Act mean in law?
This thesis assembles not only information obtained from the literature on citizen, participation and the child welfare field, but also draws on my views, opinions, and professional experience. I have been employed in the child and family services system for approximately ten years as a front-line child protection social worker. This has allowed me to directly experience the impact of not only participating in decisions being made in the system, but also to observe, at times, the frustrations and detrimental effects to those clients being served. The opinions expressed in this thesis do not necessarily reflect those of other employees in the child welfare field. This thesis is not meant to be a comprehensive study of citizen participation in child welfare and is not meant to draw conclusions on how the child welfare system should look in Winnipeg. Instead, it is intended as a way of looking at how the system has developed, the benefits that participation can bring to those involved, and how the ...

The child welfare system faces a difficult double-bind during the current health crisis: children spending more time in potentially volatile home environments with fewer outside parties able to identify any dangerous conditions, while families currently in the child welfare system navigate prolonged separations and potential emotional trauma from separation.
Show moreExecutive Summary Many questions persist regarding the use of psychotropic medication in Floridas child welfare system. The purpose of this report is to (1) describe both the broad and local contexts (including research and policy) for the use of psychotropics in child welfare, and (2) to propose a research agenda which could realistically lead to improvements in the Florida system. This technical report provides an overview of the issues that are most relevant and pressing for the Florida child welfare system. The report also presents a set of recommendations that can improve the knowledge base through the development and implementation of empirical research that can produce relevant and valid findings for future practice and policy. The prescription of psychotropic drugs to children in the child welfare system has rightfully attracted increasing attention over the past decade. Over this same time period, the profession of psychiatry has experienced a series of important debates, ...
The first few years of life are a time of unparalleled physical, intellectual, and emotional development. But they can also be a time of neglect and abuse: this is the period when children are most likely to suffer mistreatment by their parents, and most likely to be placed in foster care. Today most children entering the child welfare system are very young, and, in most large states, infants are the largest group of children entering foster care each year. Social service systems are typically not designed for very young children, however, and therefore fail to serve their special needs. This shortcoming is significant because protecting very young children from physical harm is not enough; they must also be protected from developmental harm. This book addresses this critical situation. Beginning with an overview of child development theory, it examines child abuse reporting patterns and discusses placement in foster care, reunification, and adoption. It also looks at public child welfare practice,

A number of kids have died recently under the care or watch of Child Protective Services, and caseworkers need more resources to help avoid these tragedies. As a result of these high-profile deaths, Governor Greg Abbott proposed a series of reforms at the end of March in a letter to the commissioner of the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services.. The governor recognizes that these deaths are unacceptable, and the reforms he proposes are all good ones. But implementing these reforms will require more staff and smaller caseloads. Unfortunately, the legislatures most recent funding bill has kept caseworker loads at 28 for the next two years, which is well above the number recommended by the Child Welfare League of Americas standard of 17 maximum cases per worker.. For example, the governor calls for new policies around face-to-face visits with children in foster care and safety placements. The reality is that theres just not enough time for caseworkers to make meaningful and ...

Global Research. I worked with the largest county childrens welfare services in America for more than a quarter century. For several decades as a licensed therapist in Los Angeles County, I provided mandated therapy to both children as well as young adults were aging out of the child welfare system. Over the years I made countless trips to LA County Childrens Court representing dozens of children and families as my clients.. My decades of firsthand mental health experience saw the destructive inside machinations of a corrupt, overloaded, thoroughly broken foster care system do more damage than good to children and families with whom I closely worked. Like all institutions in America, the child welfare system is just another corrosive, morally bankrupt, oppressive mechanism by which to control the poorest people in this country, acting as a national conduit pipeline to prison, substance abuse, human trafficking, homelessness, mental illness and early death..

The 24-hour toll free telephone line serves as the initial point of intake where social work related matters are reported. All incoming calls are screened and assessed to determine the need for immediate assistance or telephone counselling.. On average 8000 - 10 000 calls are received per year, evidence of the sincere need for this service.. Childline Free State also aims to empower vulnerable children and families through awareness programmes. We aim to encourage families to develop resilience, accept responsibility and to be involved in matters of child abuse.. The Childline service was started in 1986 in Kwazulu-Natal in response to the very high levels of child sexual abuse in South Africa. Provincial offices were developed and in 2001 the Telkom Family Helpline affiliated with Childline South Africa, becoming Childline Free State..

Using case examples and discussion questions, this text engages readers in a critical examination of the challenges and strategies used to date to suggest possible directions for promoting the well-being of all children. Meanwhile, the whole child integrative approach to child welfare uniquely examines strategies to address childrens physical, emotional, social, and psychological needs.
Collaborative Opportunities. Collaboration is not a useful add-on in child welfare; it is the critical link to resources that the system needs for success (Children and Family Futures, 2011). School age children that live in an environment where substance abuse is present need a variety of services. CPS is not the only agency that can assist children and families of SUD; other agencies are needed to serve the needs of the child and family to address any trauma or stressors/challenges that the family may have as a whole. The school social worker and child welfare can both work together by collaborating effective interventions, resources, etc. for the child and family as a whole unit. Two opportunities of cross sector collaboration is that both agencies can collectively achieved their goals of service delivery and contribution of strengths they both have. Rosenberg, 2009 states that School social workers generally work in teams often known as a school-based support team. The school social worker ...

Downloadable! Cash transfer programs are widely used in settings where child labor is prevalent. Although many of these programs are explicitly implemented to improve childrens welfare, in theory their impact on child labor is undetermined. This paper systematically reviews the empirical evidence on the impact of cash transfers, conditional and unconditional, on child labor. The authors find no evidence that cash transfer interventions increase child labor in practice. On the contrary, there is broad evidence that conditional and unconditional cash transfers lower both childrens participation in child labor and hours worked and cushion the effect of economic shocks that may lead households to use child labor as a coping strategy. Boys experience particularly strong decreases in economic activities, girls in household chores. The findings underline the usefulness of cash transfers as a relatively safe policy instrument to improve child welfare, but also point to knowledge gaps, for instance regarding

In an effort to facilitate family engagement with services, improve reunification outcomes, and empower the families they serve, child welfare agencies across the country have developed and implemented programs designed to provide peer mentoring. These programs work to identify parents who have successfully navigated the child welfare system in the past and train them to mentor parents who are currently in the system. The current study used a quasi-experimental design and propensity score matching to examine the outcomes for children of families served by the Iowa Department of Human Services Parent Partner program, one of the earliest and most established programs in the country. Results indicated that the children of program participants were significantly more likely to return home at discharge from their foster care placement than the children of matched non-participants. Additionally, Iowa Parent Partner program participants were significantly less likely to have a subsequent child removal within

Families around the world are struggling with the added pressures of the COVID-19 health crisis due to the effects of job losses, changes in schooling, and affected family members, especially those which are vulnerable.

On Wednesday, May 6, Senator Bob Casey (D-PA), Representative Kim Schrier (D-WA), and colleagues introduced the Emergency Funding for Child Protection Act that would bolster efforts by child protective services and non-profits to prevent abuse. The Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act (CAPTA) provides funding to states to improve child protective services and funds community-based activities that stops child abuse and neglect before it happens, and the Emergency Funding for Child Protection Act would strengthen CAPTA.. The Emergency Funding for Child Protection Act would provide $500 million in emergency funds for local child protective services and $1 billion for community-based child abuse prevention programs. Child welfare and human service agencies across the country that play a role in preventing child abuse are challenged with conducting home visits or communicating virtual with children and family during the pandemic. During COVID-19 pandemic, children are at home and can be at risk ...
The Natural Resource Protection and Child Health Indicators, 2012 Release, are produced in support of the U.S. Millennium Challenge Corporation as selection criteria for funding eligibility. These indicators are successors to the Natural Resource Management Index (NRMI), which was produced from 2006 to 2011 and was based on the same underlying data.

Sara Wittmeyer writing for WFYI:. The number of kids in Indianas child welfare system is soaring. Its doubled in the last five years to more than 29,000 kids.. There arent enough foster homes in the state, putting more pressure on the Department of Child Services.. The department is already under a microscope; when Mary Beth Bonaventura resigned as DCS director late last year, she said she could all but guarantee children would die unless the state started providing more money and support to the agency. The state responded by hiring an independent consultant to review the agency.. On this weeks Noon Edition, we talk about the state of Indianas foster care system. Is the state doing enough to help the most vulnerable children? And a discussion about whats contributing to the demand for foster families. ...
Medical neglect can have serious consequences. There is little evidence base to guide medical neglect management and research. Our objective was to describe a group of children reported to child protective services (CPS) for medical neglect to define this population as well as identify prevention and intervention approaches. This was a retrospective descriptive study of all patients at a pediatric hospital reported to CPS for medical neglect over a 6-year period. Data about health, health care, CPS involvement, and social history were obtained through medical record review. Of the 154 patients reported for medical neglect, 140 (91%) had chronic illness. The most common diagnoses were type 1 diabetes, organ transplantation, and prematurity-related conditions. Most patients (83%) were black or Hispanic and 90% were publically insured. More than half of patients (54%) had >1 CPS report during the study period. Almost all patients (88%) returned to the hospital for care subsequent to the medical ...
According to Radar, Child Protective Services has launched an investigation after the photo of their 13 year old daughter in bed with a half naked 20 year old man surfaced on the internet. Apparently this will involve interviews with the parents and Willow and the 20 year old who caused all the uproar. The investigation will last about a month and then a report will be filed. I dont think Will and Jada are going to lose custody or have any charges filed, but I would like to know what the guy has to say about all of this and if he gets caught in some type of lie or does say there was something going on between himself and Jada. I guess this means the world is not really covert pedophiles like Jada seems to think we are. I think this is the right thing to do and I think there would have been some outrage if they didnt at least give it a look. We are talking about a 13 year old here and it wouldnt be the first time in recorded history that a mom didnt really know the full truth about what was ...
Michelle Johnson-Motoyama, associate professor of social welfare, received a grant in 2012 from the Lois and Samuel Silberman Fund of the New York Community Trust to assess the needs of Hispanic children in contact with the child welfare system in the United States and to develop training to better serve families. The findings indicated that, while Hispanic children age birth to 3 receive more referrals for early intervention, they often do not receive treatment or services.. Research suggest Hispanic children, especially Hispanic children of immigrants in contact with the child welfare system, are at a high risk of developmental difficulties and are not getting the services they need for several reasons, including lack of coordination of services and many others, Johnson-Motoyama said.. The disparity is especially troubling given that in 2003 the Keeping Families Safe Act was passed, requiring all children younger than 3 years of age in child welfare systems to receive a referral for early ...
Organizational problems have hampered the National Childrens Study from its inception, and continue to engender doubts about the future course of the study. First, decision-making authority and organizational structure were and remain vague. Dozens of working groups involving hundreds of scientists began deliberations in 2002, and made recommendations on the study design and protocol, yet there was no process for reconciling those priorities with one another or with practical aspects of feasibility. There are multiple advisory groups representing the lead federal agencies, the extramural research community; an executive committee consisting of selected Center investigators; and oversight by the National Childrens Study Program Office, the Director of NICHD, and the Director of NIH-yet how the major decisions affecting the future of the National Childrens Study will be made remains unclear. A review conducted by the National Research Council and Institute of Medicine generated an extensive ...
provided that: The Congress finds as follows:. (1) For Federal fiscal year 2004, child protective services (CPS) staff nationwide reported investigating or assessing an estimated 3,000,000 allegations of child maltreatment, and determined that 872,000 children had been abused or neglected by their parents or other caregivers.. (2) Combined, the Child Welfare Services (CWS) and Promoting Safe and Stable Families (PSSF) programs provide States about $700,000,000 per year, the largest source of targeted Federal funding in the child protection system for services to ensure that children are not abused or neglected and, whenever possible, help children remain safely with their families.. (3) A 2003 report by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) reported that little research is available on the effectiveness of activities supported by CWS funds-evaluations of services supported by PSSF funds have generally shown little or no effect.. (4) Further, the Department of Health and Human Services ...

Consistent with the districts commitment to keep students safe from harm and the obligation of school officials to report to child protective services when they have reasonable cause to suspect that a student has been abused or maltreated, the district will cooperate with local child protective services workers who wish to conduct interviews of students on school property relating to allegations of suspected child abuse, and/or neglect, or custody investigations.. All requests by child protective services to interview a student on school property shall be made directly to the building principal or his or her designee. The building principal or his or her designee shall set the time and place of the interview. The building principal or his or her designee shall decide if it is necessary and appropriate for a school official to be present during the interview, depending on the age of the student being interviewed and the nature of the allegations.

This article sets out to explore service provision for families affected by domestic violence and abuse (DVA). For most families where there are child protection concerns, there are possibilities for intervention from child welfare agencies and domestic abuse services but these have been criticised as having distinct and disconnected practice cultures and orientation. Recognising this divergence, in this paper we advocate for safeguarding children affected by DVA using the family group conference (FGC) model. This offers possibilities for a coherent response which integrates both child- and women-centred concerns in a holistic approach to family safety and wellbeing. Furthermore, it is well documented that safeguarding work involves professionally-led decision-making which is pre-occupied with the management of risk. Family group conferences, however, promote a partnership approach which engages families in a more democratic decision-making process. As such, FGCs offer families the opportunity ...

Yesterday at the State Capital in St Paul, Black Lives matter rallied outside for fair treatment by the police and inside (where I was) at the rotunda for fair treatment in child protection for black families and children.. Child protection is viewed by many in the community as a finance driven machine making life miserable for families and ruining the lives of their children.. Far too many group homes and foster care givers fall far short of providing a safe haven for traumatized children and state ward children are often;. * forced to take psychotropic medications without adequate mental health services. * abused while in child protective services. From reporting to discharge, the over representation of Black children in the child protection system cannot be overstated.. Nationally,. 37% of children are reported to child protection by the time they are 18 unless they are black, when the number jumps to 54%.. Black families are 4 times more likely to be subjects of a child protection ...
This important work being done by the child welfare sector will provide Black children and youth with the supports they need to achieve their full potential, said Dr. Merilee Fullerton, Minister of Children, Community and Social Services. These new supports will build on the incredible work of community organizations through the enhanced Ontario Black Youth Action Plan.. Providing high quality, culturally appropriate and responsive community-based services with a focus on prevention and early intervention is a key component of Ontarios child welfare redesign strategy. This includes investing in initiatives to better serve Indigenous, Black, racialized and LGBTQ2S children and youth.. We commend the government for recognizing the damaging impact of the overrepresentation of African Canadians in the child welfare system, said Nicole Bonnie, Chief Executive Officer of the Ontario Association of Childrens Aid Societies. This funding will help support the dismantling of anti-Black racism as ...
Reporting [child abuse] frequently becomes an ethical dilemma as a result of complex interactions among several factors including diverse professional contexts, legal requirements, professional-ethical standards, and the circumstances of suspected abuse. The reporting dilemma also reflects the fact that breaching confidentiality and breaking the law both constitute unethical behavior. However, beyond the professional difficulties in dealing with child abuse and neglect, there is a distinct need to intervene on behalf of the children victimized by abuse.Currently, an estimated one million children are victims of child abuse and neglect each year. In 1996, child protective services in all states investigated more than two million reports and substantiated just under one million, child abuse victims. Approximately 1,000 victims, who were previously known by child protective services, died as a result of abuse and neglect. Because of legal requirements, over fifty percent of all investigated ...
A high rate of co-occurring mental health disorders have been documented in children with prenatal alcohol exposure. Investigators have demonstrated that alcohols impact on the developing fetal brain, combined with environmental factors, is the source of this problem. However, more recent research has begun to focus on factors embedded in the child welfare system, preventable factors that can be an important determinant for risk of mental health problems in children. State Child Protective Services departments can develop policies that reduce mental health morbidity for children in the systems care who have been prenatally exposed to alcohol or illicit drugs.
Researchers at Northwestern University have found two substances to be effective in treating effects of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders on rats.

Children coming into contact with child welfare agencies constitute what has been described as the dominant public mental health problem when it comes to children. These approximately 5.8 million children are disproportionately non-white, and display considerable race/ethnic disparities in their utilization of mental health services. For the first time in the field of child welfare research, members of this research team are assembling a unique data set that links the respondents of a national survey of children in child welfare to their Medicaid claims data, along with information on Medicaid and mental health policies within their counties of residence ...
The neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) are a group of 17 lesser known chronic infections which predominantly affect poor and disenfranchised communities. There are a number of NTDs that cause significant global morbidity in children, including the three major soil transmitted helminth (STH) infections (ascariasis, trichuriasis and hookworm infection), schistosomiasis and trachoma. These NTDs, together with lymphatic filariasis and onchocerciasis, are currently being targeted for global control and elimination through mass drug administration (MDA) campaigns. They represent the most common NTDs and share significant geographical overlap. Additionally, many individuals are polyparasitised with more than a single NTD. Integrated NTD control and elimination MDA programmes offer safe and efficacious treatments for all seven NTDs. However, the current global level of MDA coverage for the leading childhood NTDs, that is, STH infections, schistosomiasis and trachoma, remains well under 50%. Limiting ...
Washington--The Senate Select Committee on Indian Affairs last week approved a wide-ranging measure that would authorize $92 million over the next four years to combat child abuse and family violence on Indian lands.. The Indian child protective services and family violence prevention act, S 2340, sponsored by Senator John McCain, Republican of Arizona, would provide $3 million a year to establish Indian child resources centers within each area office of the Bureau of Indian Affairs.. The bill also would authorize grants to tribes totaling $10 million a year to establish child protective services that would have authority to investigate reports of abuse and neglect.. The measure also would authorize three-year matching grants totaling $10 million to encourage tribes to treat and prevent family violence and to shelter and assist victims.. The grants would cover 75 per4cent of the cost of such programs and would be administered by the Indian Health Service.. Senator Daniel K. Inouye, the ...
Unfortunately, I doubt that editorial writer Sharon Broussard will follow in Spectors footsteps. I expect Broussards next editorial will minimize the notion of panic and stack the deck with the false claim that NCCPR opposes the paper reporting on child abuse deaths - as opposed to our taking issue with how that reporting was done - a distinction made clear in the earlier posts. (UPDATE, SEPTEMBER 1: I am pleased to report that, in an editorial today, Broussard does not, in fact, misrepresent NCCPRs position. She does, however, repeat all of her earlier mistakes, including the demonstrably false claim that DCFS recently had placed family preservation above all else and the Big Lie of American child welfare: that child removal equals child safety. UPDATE, SEPTEMBER 5: it turns out that while Broussard didnt make the comments Id expected herself, she outsourced the job to the papers reader representative. His column, and my response on the Plain Dealer website, are available here.) ...

This section provides an overview of current thinking on risk assessments in child welfare. Given that child welfare services are primarily geared toward maintaining the safety of children who are at risk of future maltreatment, the literature mostly focuses on the development and use of various strategies for finding those cases with the highest degree of risk. Beginning in the 1980s, there was widespread discussion about how to go about creating tools to achieve this aim. Wald and Woolverton 1990 expertly captures many of the most important elements of these debates and pushed the field to consider both the statistical properties of the tools as well as their potential use. Gambrill and Shlonsky 2000 extends this work as part of a Children and Youth Services Review issue on risk assessment in child welfare, detailing the many errors that can occur in individual decision making, both with and without reliable and valid statistical tools. These works were followed by Rycus and Hughes 2003, which ...

I am pleased to announce that today, through a series of funding opportunity announcements (FOAs), NIH has officially launched a multi-year initiative to improve our understanding of how environmental exposures affect childrens health and development. Called the Environmental influences on Child Health Outcomes (ECHO) program, this effort is consistent with the goals of the former National Childrens Study, but uses a different approach. Instead of a single longitudinal study, ECHO will support multiple, synergistic, longitudinal studies tapping into well-established and expanding clinical research networks to determine the effects of environmental exposures on four key pediatric outcomes: upper and lower airway; obesity; pre-, peri-, and postnatal outcomes; and neurodevelopment. This approach was developed by an NIH working group with representatives from 16 NIH Institutes and Centers and co-led by Lawrence A. Tabak, D.D.S., Ph.D., NIH Principal Deputy Director, and Janine A. Clayton, M.D., ...

This article addresses the question of the structure of local child welfare activities in light of community-level factors. It poses the following research questions: how are different community-level factors related to child welfare client structures in communities and what is the extent to which these factors explain structural differences? The applied theoretical framework is based on social disorganization and strain theories as well as human developmental approach. The data has been collected from two Finnish national databases and it consists of variables containing 257 Finnish municipalities. The method of analysis is multinomial logistic regression. The results suggest that the local child welfare structures are tied to social disorganization, policing and culture as well as to the intensity of control in the communities.

The Brazilian Highlands or Brazilian Plateau (Portuguese: Planalto Brasileiro) are an extensive geographical region, covering most of the eastern, southern and central portions of Brazil, in all approximately half of the country's land area, or some 4,500,000 km2 (1,930,511 sq mi). In addition, the vast majority of Brazil's population (190,755,799; 2010 census) lives in the highlands or on the narrow coastal region immediately adjacent to it. Ancient basaltic lava flows gave birth to much of the region. However, the time of dramatic geophysical activity is long past, as there is now no seismic or volcanic activity. Erosion has also played a large part in shaping the Highlands, forming extensive sedimentary deposits and wearing down the mountains. The Brazilian Highlands are recognized for the great diversity to be found there: within the region there are several different biomes, vastly different climatic conditions, many types of soil, and thousands of animal and plant species. ...

  • Given that the stakes in the child welfare system include the very real, irreversible, and sometimes permanent trauma that a misdiagnosis of SBS/AHT causes to children, legal professionals in the child welfare system should apply the same diligence and objectivity when confronted with an SBS/AHT case as has been modeled by innocence projects nationwide.

  • A new study published in the Journal of Studies on Alcohol and Drugs reveals that the risk of abusing marijuana, inhalants and other drugs is high among teenagers who are in child welfare system. (
  • Using data from two national surveys, Fettes and colleagues found that 18 percent of teens in the welfare system admitted to ever smoking marijuana, versus 14 percent of other teens. (
  • It's known that kids who enter the child welfare system typically have some risk factors for drug use such as a history of domestic abuse or mental health issues. (
  • Overall, teens in the welfare system were more likely to have tried marijuana, inhalants or hard drugs but not alcohol. (
  • But whereas drug use was more common among teens in the welfare system, not all of those kids were at equal risk. (
  • For the parents and others who care for these kids, Fettes said it's important to be aware of the increased risk of substance abuse.On the wider scale, Fettes said that right now, there are typically multiple, distinct service systems working with teens in the child welfare system. (
  • Given the increased risk, the child welfare system may be an ideal venue to incorporate proven prevention and intervention programs for youth substance use," Fettes concluded. (
  • First he became a foster parent, then he set out to radically transform the system with his nonprofit Skookum Kids. (

  • One is trying to deal with the fact that we don't have a child mental health system anymore. (
  • With older kids who have problems but they haven't committed a crime, the juvenile justice system won't intervene. (

  • Many of the kids he works with have been part of both the juvenile justice system and the child welfare system, making them what are known as "crossover" or "dual-status" youth. (
  • The kid has a lot of reasons not to say that they're (in) one or the other," Rotramel said, referring to the child welfare system or juvenile justice system. (
  • No one flagged that for the juvenile justice system, and the caseworker from the child welfare system doesn't show up because [the child] is embarrassed to say he is in child welfare," said Rotramel. (
  • So he ends up in court with no parent representative, and he goes through the system without anybody visiting him, including the child welfare caseworker. (
  • He saw those sorts of gaps frequently, but he was never sure exactly how many kids - or which ones - overlapped between the juvenile justice system and the child welfare agency. (
  • Kids would have to go through the same intake process over and over at different departments, and caseworkers couldn't easily see where else in the system a child had previously been. (
  • Those are the names that immediately come to mind when I think about how the news media cover the child welfare system. (
  • But, when it comes to news about the child welfare system, our team's latest study reveals that something else is absent from coverage: its connection to domestic violence. (
  • our researchers found that domestic violence appeared in only 12 percent of stories about the child welfare system, and most of those stories only mentioned domestic violence in passing. (
  • Until now, the relationships between the performance of our child welfare system and the growth and outcomes of foster care have not been understood. (
  • It provides a comprehensive picture of children's experiences in the child welfare system and a gauge of the effectiveness of that system. (

  • Grand Chief Derek Nepinak says putting more money into child welfare doesn't make sense until the system stops rewarding the apprehension of kids. (
  • What to do-and not do-when moving a child through a system. (
  • Practices need to be based on the specific needs of children in the system. (
  • The purpose of the child welfare system is to protect children at risk of abuse or neglect from their parents or guardians (or from whomever the state defines as a perpetrator). (
  • Because many states define status offenses as grounds for involvement by the child welfare system, status offenses are also covered in this chapter. (
  • 1 Youth who are truant or who run away from home or placement may also "cross over" into the juvenile justice system for violations of court orders controlling their behavior so information on status offenses is also relevant for a complete understanding of the relationship between the child welfare and juvenile justice systems. (
  • In this report, we use the term "child welfare system" to refer to the full range of services provided by a public agency, from reporting and investigation through reunification, placement, placement monitoring, adoption, and all other dispositions. (
  • In common parlance, the term "foster care system" is sometimes used even more broadly to be interchangeable with the term "child welfare system," but we do not do so here. (
  • Likewise, while the term "child protection system" is sometimes used as another name for the full system, we do not use it that way here, since "child protection" has a second, more narrow usage, referring to the front end of the child welfare system-namely, reporting, investigating, and recordkeeping of allegations of abuse and neglect. (
  • The foster care system refers to the portion of the child welfare system involving out-of-home placements, since only a subset of children in the child welfare system go into placements. (
  • The public benefits system , though it is sometimes referred to as the "welfare system," covers a separate area of services entirely from the child welfare system. (
  • Federal funding for the child welfare system is embedded in the Social Security Act in the same sections that deal with public assistance benefits (as is discussed more fully in the text), and this may cause some to confuse the two. (
  • RAND conducts research on issues that affect child welfare such as poverty, abuse and neglect, foster care, adoption, child protective services, and other government services designed to protect children and encourage family stability. (

  • GENEVA (Reuters) - The spread of state welfare for children around Africa has the potential to make a major dent in global poverty, the United Nations said on Wednesday. (
  • Children account for the majority of those around the world in extreme poverty, living on less than $1.90 per day, with half of them in Africa, where social security systems are weak. (
  • The evidence shows clearly that social protection benefits, and cash transfers in particular, have a positive impact on poverty, food security, health and access to education - thus helping to ensure that children can realize their full potential, breaking the vicious cycle of poverty," it said. (
  • In sub-Saharan Africa, expected to have 90 percent of children in extreme poverty by 2030, 40 out of 48 countries have some form of cash transfer program, but most pay too little and overall only 13.1 percent of children receive them. (
  • They aren't all huge programs but it's been a real growth in the region and it's moving very, very quickly," David Stewart, UNICEF's head of child poverty, told reporters. (
  • The ILO-UNICEF study also warned about the re-emergence of poverty in Europe, where some governments are cutting back child benefits due to austerity. (
  • Substandard child care only perpetuates the cycle of poverty. (
  • Child poverty is not inevitable but policy-susceptible, and some countries have been doing much better than others at protecting their most vulnerable children. (
