Do Dads Matter? Child Welfare Outcomes for Two-Parent Families (Roundtable 1)
In roundtable format, this session addresses several questions relating to whether or to what extent involving fathers impacts child welfare outcomes: are kinship substitute care placements used more often in cases involving two-parent rather than single-parent families; is the time to permanent placement for children different for two-parent than for single-parent families; and are there differences in the frequency of different types of permanency decisions for children when both parents rather than only one are involved in the case. The presenter also provides an overview of the data from the first national evaluation of Family Treatment Drug Courts, an intervention serving parents involved with child welfare due to substance abuse.
