Understanding the Organizational Context of Practice Reform in Child Welfare (Workshop 154)
The Chapin Hall Center for Children, as part of an evaluation of the Community Partnerships for Protecting Children (CPPC), conducted a survey in 2001 of 572 workers and supervisors from public Child Protective Service (CPS) agencies. This workshop identifies the questions asked and reports initial survey findings. The study illustrates historical concerns about low job satisfaction in child welfare; explores new predictors of job satisfaction, i.e., practice reforms, role conflict, and team level factors; and reveals variable relationships between job satisfaction and turnover across sites. The findings also point to strategies for supporting practice reforms.
