National Study of CPS Systems and Reform Efforts: Results from the Local Agency Survey (Workshop 8)
A major concern to practitioners and policymakers is the need to understand more clearly how Child Protective Services (CPS) are being delivered and how agency policy and practice is evolving at the actual level of service provision in the field. This presentation communicates the results of a survey of over 300 local CPS agencies conducted as part of the National Study of CPS Systems and Reform efforts. Presenters discuss the sampling design, the data collection instrument and process, analytic methodology, and the findings.
