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.

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.

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'.

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)

Child Welfare and Child Well-Being: New Perspectives From the National Survey of Child and Adolescent Well-Being - Oxford...
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,
Determinant of factors associated with child health outcomes and service utilization in Ghana: multiple indicator cluster...
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.

Over this same time period, the profession of psychiatry has experienced a series of important debates, ...
Tender Years: Toward Developmentally Sensitive Child Welfare Services for Very Young Children - Oxford Scholarship
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,
Why a Minimum Wage Increase and Child Welfare Reforms Would Help Texans | St. Edward's University in Austin, Texas
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 ...
The Failures of America's Foster Care System : TFR LIVE : Truth Frequency Radio

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.. Though each county child protective ...
Collaborative Opportunities Collaboration is not a useful add-on in child welfare - Free Custom Essays Examples
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 ...
Cash transfers and child labor
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

Child care run like fast-food industry | Times Higher Education (THE)
Child welfare in the UK has adopted the style of the fast food industry, according to a leading social policy researcher. David Thorpe, senior lecturer in applied social science at Lancaster University, told delegates at a conference "Rethinking Child Protection" last week, that care workers had standardised services so much that child welfare now came by production line. "I call it the McDonaldisation of child welfare. There are a lot of striking parallels. As in McDonalds you stand in the queue and tell the person behind the till what you want and they press a button, so in child protection the skills of the worker in trying to identify individual family difficulties get reduced to searching for evidence of things that are alleged to have happened on a menu of one-liners. "It triggers what we now call the forensic gaze, rather than a broad look at the familys circumstances and some proper discussion with them about formulating an individual agenda." Dr Thorpes was the keynote speech at the ...

I am not sure if you are aware that the Administration of Children and Families (ACF) is at this moment desperately trying to sustain funding that supports a vital data source, the National Survey of Child and Adolescent Well-Being (NSCAW). NSCAW is a nationally representative survey that enables ACF, along with researchers across multiple disciplines committed to improving outcomes for vulnerable children, to monitor the health, mental health - including trauma, development, and well-being of infants, children, and youth served by the child welfare system. NSCAW has been critical for informing current policies about childrens unmet needs - particularly the dearth of evidence-based intervention for this population. ACF is requesting funding in the FY 2015 budget for NSCAW - and that the funding is in serious jeopardy of being cut without grassroots support from the field attesting to the need for ...

Brown School has received funding from the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development to evaluate the effectiveness of Pathways Triple P, an innovative parent training program, on preventing and treating behavior problems among high-risk children in the child-welfare system.. "Children in the child welfare system are at higher risk for serious behavior problems," said Patricia Kohl, assistant professor at the Brown School and principal investigator of the study. "We want to determine if this program can improve the outcomes for one of our countrys most vulnerable populations, and help ensure that they fulfill their full potential in life.". Pathways Triple P was developed about thirty years ago as an intervention to reduce child behavior problems. The program provides five levels of parent education and training techniques at different levels of intensity depending on specific situations. Trainings range from level one, which includes general information about child parenting and ...

Trends in Child Health 1997-2006: Assessing Disparities in Low Birthweight | Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies
To provide fuller detail on disparities in child health, the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies undertook an examination of how selected child health indicators vary by sociodemographic characteristics such as family type, educational attainment of householder, employment status of household, poverty status, and health insurance coverage. This brief examines disparities in the prevalence of reported low birthweight among children under the age of 18 who are African American, Hispanic or white. Comparisons of low-birthweight frequency are made between the racial/ethnic groups of children overall and between children of various racial/ethnic groups in families with comparable sociodemographic characteristics.. ...
Once a child enters into the child welfare system due to parental SUD issues, various factors determine whether the child would be reunified with their family or if parental rights were terminated. However, usually, the decision depends on whether parents demonstrate that they have successfully improved the circumstances that initially caused the removal of their children before the hearings start (Harris-McKoy et al., 2014). According to Hong, Ryan, Hernandez, and Brown (2014), parents with SUD treatment failures and inability to improve parenting skills are more likely to experience termination of parental rights (TPR). Parents who have coexisting mental health problems and incarceration records also are more at risk for TPR (Meyer, McWey, McKendrick, & Henderson, 2010). The same study found that parents whose rights were terminated had more risk factors than those who experienced reunification. Among those risk factors, poverty and unemployment were very common, although these factors are ...

Dear All, I share an interest in the questions posed by Dr. Opton yesterday afternoon. Aside from the psychological and emotional toll this levies on children, I am also interested in what can be done to capitalize on existing child welfare funding flexibility. Multiple moves indicate certainly a form of funding flexibility, do they not? I am often told that the money cannot be used flexibly to find the most appropriate placement (or an independent) apartment and services for older youth in care because the funding is either not available or inflexible. Therefore, Im interested in how it is that the youth can be moved so frequently, given these restrictions. Has anyone researched any of the questions the Dr. poses so eloquently to this listserv? Is there any good research on how the decision to move a child are made, etc.?

CHILD Study data to support new research into child lung health - CHILD Cohort Study
28 June 2017. A research team at The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) in Toronto, ON, has been awarded $75,000 to use CHILD Study data to develop tools that will predict and monitor lung disease in young children.. The research funding, announced today, is part of a $1.85 million investment from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) Institute of Human Development, Child and Youth Health (IHDCYH) to improve reproductive, maternal and child health outcomes across Canada.. "In Canada, lung diseases cause more hospitalizations among preschoolers than any other disease," says AllerGen investigator Dr. Teresa To, a professor at The University of Toronto and a Senior Scientist at SickKids, who will lead the project. "Although chronic lung diseases such as asthma often begin at a young age, they are typically not diagnosed until a few years later. This grant will allow our team to build models to predict breathing problems in children, which we believe will reduce the delay in diagnosis ...

Natural Resource Protection and Child Health Indicators, 2013 Release: Natural Resource Management Index (NRMI) | SEDAC
The Natural Resource Protection and Child Health Indicators, 2013 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. Like the NRMI, the Natural Resource Protection Indicator (NRPI) and Child Health Indicator (CHI) are based on proximity-to-target scores ranging from 0 to 100 (at target). The NRPI covers 221 countries and is calculated based on the weighted average percentage of biomes under protected status. The CHI is a composite index for 188 countries derived from the average of three proximity-to-target scores for access to improved sanitation, access to improved water, and child mortality. The 2013 release includes a consistent time series of NRPIs and CHIs for 2006 to 2013 ...

Characteristics of Children Reported to Child Protective Services for Medical Neglect. - NextBio article
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 ...
Crazy Days and Nights: Will And Jada Pinkett Smith Being Investigated By Child Protective Services
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 ...
Training to help bridge gap for Hispanics not receiving early childhood services | Center for Children & Families
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 ...
Saving the National Children's Study : Epidemiology
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 ...
USC02] 42 USC CHAPTER 7, SUBCHAPTER IV, Part B, subpart 1: stephanie tubbs jones child welfare services program
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 ...

Pennsylvania law keeps some drug-exposed infants off child welfare radar, advocates say - News - The Intelligencer - Doylestown...
Just under 2,100 Pennsylvania newborns whose mothers had Medicaid were diagnosed with narcotics withdrawal syndrome last year, but only 972 infants were reported to county child welfare authorities as having been exposed to drugs in the womb. In 2015, the first year the state broke out data for those substance-exposed newborns, 707 infants were reported to child welfare as being exposed to narcotics, but 2,350 babies were diagnosed with withdrawal from narcotics, known as neonatal

Exploring approaches to child welfare in contexts of domestic violence and abuse : family group conferences - University of...
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 ...

Social Workers and Child Abuse Reporting<...
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 ...
2016 Webinar 3: Reducing the Rate of Co-occurring Mental Health Disorders in Children with Prenatal Substance Exposure: The...
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.
Major Breakthrough on Fetal Alcohol Syndrome has Huge Implications for Child Welfare System
Center for Mental Health Services Research
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 ...
Global trends in neglected tropical disease control and elimination: impact on child health | Archives of Disease in Childhood
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 ...
Senate Bill Aimed at Reducing Child Abuse on Indian Lands - Education Week
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 ...
NCCPR Child Welfare Blog: August 2010
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.) ...
Risk Assessment in Child Protection Services - Social Work - Oxford Bibliographies
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 ...
NCCPR Child Welfare Blog: June 2011
Defenders of assuming everyone accused is guilty like to claim that "where theres smoke, theres fire." But in child welfare, where theres smoke theres often nothing but smoke. This third category simply encourages neighbors with a grudge or vindictive ex spouses to keep phoning in reports. If enough people "blow smoke" in the form of such reports, in which the accused cant prove herself or himself innocent, eventually caseworkers are likely to simply take the children, bringing on all the well-known harms of needless foster care. (To see, literally, what a fanatical presumption of guilt ultimately can do to a child, check out this previous post to the Blog. And for a classic example of authorities carried away by their own "smoke" see the series running this week in the Detroit Free Press.) ...

Standard Search - Social Care Online
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. In general, the more fragile the communal structures, the more last-resort child welfare there is in the community. Combining fragile communal structures with weak ...

Environment and Obesity in the National Children's Study
Objective: In this review we describe the approach taken by the National Childrens Study (NCS), a 21-year prospective study of 100,000 American children, to understanding the role of environmental factors in the development of obesity. Data sources and extraction: We review the literature with regard to the two core hypotheses in the NCS that relate to environmental origins of obesity and describe strategies that will be used to test each hypothesis. Data synthesis: Although it is clear that obesity in an individual results from an imbalance between energy intake and expenditure, control of the obesity epidemic will require understanding of factors in the modern built environment and chemical exposures that may have the capacity to disrupt the link between energy intake and expenditure. The NCS is the largest prospective birth cohort study ever undertaken in the United States that is explicitly designed to seek information on the environmental causes of pediatric disease. Conclusions: Through ...

Hospital admissions reflect rise in child protection thresholds | Community Care
Experts have warned that markers such as hospital admissions could already be showing the impact of rising child protection thresholds.. The warnings follow a Community Care survey of 170 frontline child protection professionals which revealed that more than half had been pressurised to downgrade child protection concerns and not put children on plans. A significant proportion of respondents reported this had happened in physical and sexual abuse cases, although most involved neglect and emotional abuse.. Figures from the Violence Research Group at Cardiff University show that, for the second year running, the number of hospital admissions for under-11s with injuries as the result of violence rose. This bucks the overall trend for admissions for injuries from violence, which are falling year-on-year.. The team found a 20% rise in under-11s who needed emergency hospital treatment. Although the overall number remains small, the rise follows an 8% increase in 2009.. Dr Jonathan Shepherd, director ...

My siblings are part of who I am. If you have brothers or sisters, I think you will know what I mean. The influence of siblings on our lives is hard to exaggerate. Historically, the child welfare system has not always done a great job acknowledging and protecting sibling relationships. Fortunately, thats changing.

168m children engaged in child labour globally, says ILO - The Nation Nigeria
In countries affected by conflicts and disaster, the ILO, governments, workers and employers organizations and humanitarian actors work together to prevent and withdraw children from child labour, and enrol them in education. Using an integrated approach to promote fundamental principles and rights at work, the ILO has developed specific tools to prevent child labour and provide economic reintegration in post-conflict situations, with a particular focus on children formerly associated with armed forces and groups. "The ILO works closely with partners to tackle child labour in emergencies. In 2016, the Child Labour Task Force of the Alliance for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action , co-chaired by the ILO and Plan International, launched its Inter-agency Guidance: Supporting the Protection Needs of Child Labourers in Emergencies . This toolkit provides guidance to humanitarian workers on protecting children from child labour. "The ILO is part of Alliance 8.7 , the global strategic ...

Pediatricians are in the unique position of being on the front line of care for children and having access to their families. This article presents both a rationale and the evidence base for identifying the family characteristics and processes that affect child health and suggests approaches that pediatricians can implement to improve the care of children, using data from 3 recent reports of the Institute of Medicine and National Research Council, as well as other recent family research. Evidence regarding the impact on child health of 3 family factors in particular (family composition and living arrangements, family routines, and parental depression) is highlighted, and implications for pediatric practice are described. ...
Search Results for "organizational theory" | Human Kinetics
Child protective services is a broad category that impacts a variety of organizations who work directly with children. Youth sport and recreation organizations, as well as universities who have youth services, are uniquely positioned for increased risk from coaches, counselors, volunteers, or administrators who have regular access to youth via their roles as trusted leaders. Sport management graduates often find themselves in these positions, or supervising individuals who hold these positions. With this premise in mind, it is essential that sport management students are exposed to the concept of child protection, and understand the potential ramifications if child protective measures are not followed. This case describes an incident occurring at a university kids camp where student employees serve as counselors. The incident places one counselor in a precarious situation, and forces his supervisor into some difficult decisions. The case allows students to evaluate the situation from an ...

A primary goal of the U.S. child welfare system (CWS) is to maintain children investigated for maltreatment in their parents homes whenever safely possible. This study explores the possibility that early care and education (ECE) services (e.g., child care, preschool, day care) can help the CWS achieve this goal by using a nationally representative sample of children referred to CWS for suspected maltreatment to measure the relationship between ECE receipt and the likelihood that 0-5 year olds in the CWS will be placed in foster care approximately 18 months later. Specifically, logistic regression analyses explore the relationship between: (1) regular ECE participation (yes/no), and (2) type of ECE arrangement (Head Start, other center- or home-based ECE, family/friend/relative ECE, other ECE, and multiple types of ECE) and foster placement risk. After controlling for multiple socio-demographic characteristics and foster placement risk factors, children who received ECE (yes/no) were no less ...

Hillside Primary School - Who should you talk to if you think your child needs extra help or support?
If you bring your child to school or can come to the school, your childs class teacher will probably be the best first point of contact. Please make an arrangement to talk to them about your concern. The start of the school day may not be a good time and you may want to speak somewhere more private than the classroom, so just arrange a time and place with the teacher to suit you both. If you cannot come to school, you can ring the school and speak to the secretary to arrange an appointment with your childs class teacher (which could be in person or by telephone if you prefer). You could also approach the Assistant Head (Inclusion) who has responsibility for all children with AN in the school. The Assistant Head (Inclusion) hosts a drop-in session on Tuesday mornings at the Castle Community Hub buildings attached to the school between 8.30 and 9.15am during term time for any parent who wishes to discuss their childs needs. The Assistant Head (Inclusion) is also supported by an Assistant ...

When this young black male grows up dealing with all the peer pressures, struggles, and obstacles life has to throw at him, hes going to wrestle with his identity, when he has a child if it doesnt work with the mother (bad relationships), struggles with the family court (difficult time navigating child welfare system), and isnt involved in the life of his child like he wants or should be, whats he going to fall back on, are the voices in his head. The voices in his head that recall a woman saying "Im the mother and the father," at this point if that male says, they dont need me, meaning his family, which is the sad reality a lot of times (now we deal with mental wellness), thats how this terminology, this play on words, can have a negative effect on the child. Also, you can flip the roles, lets say its a female in this situation, it could make her have a difficult time working with the father, when they struggle, because if her mom is both why cant she be, and thus, her kids dont NEED ...
Study finds 'alarming rate' of OD deaths among young Indigenous people in B.C. - Kelowna Capital News
The death rates among young Indigenous people who use drugs reported in this study are appalling and must be viewed as a public health and human rights issue," the study says.. An additional 26 participants have died since the research was completed, and 15 of them had overdosed. Illness - including hepatitis C and HIV - and suicide were the next causes of death, it says.. The ongoing Cedar Project is based at the BC Childrens Hospital Research Institute and has been examining links between historical traumas, such as residential schools, childhood sexual abuse and child welfare systems, on HIV and hepatitis C infection among young Indigenous drug users.. Researchers from the University of British Columbia, the University of Northern British Columbia, the Vancouver Native Health Society and the Canadian Aboriginal AIDS Network were among those involved in the study.. "It is possible that some of the overdoses observed were in fact suicides," it says, adding previous findings by the Cedar ...

Description: This report provides background on teens and young adults in and exiting from foster care, and the federal support that is available to these youth as they transition to adulthood. It begins with a discussion of the characteristics of youth who have had contact with the child welfare system, including those who entered care, as well as those who exited care via emancipation because they have reached the legal age of majority. The report then provides an overview of the federal foster care system, including the Chafee Foster Care Independence program (CFCIP), and provisions in federal foster care law that are intended to help prepare youth for adulthood. The report goes on to discuss federal support for youth aging out of care in the areas of education, health care, employment, and housing. The report seeks to understand how states vary in their approaches to serving older youth in care and those who are recently emancipated. ...

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. ...
