Research Library

Note from the reviewer: My goal has always been a simple one: do the most good for the most children. As the former director of Fairfield County Child and Adult Protective Services in Ohio, I am fully aware of the administrative and direct service challenges associated with serving a community. In my role at Northwoods, I have the opportunity to share this Research Library, helping agencies discover new ways to overcome those challenges. I’ll add a new resource every few weeks, so check back or sign up to receive email notifications directly in your inbox.

Great article and definitely worth the quick read. This blog effectively sums up what I have heard numerous, incredible, dedicated and committed social workers across the country verbalize. One of the statements offered in this article echoes statements made throughout child welfare agencies all over, “Child protection social work in particular has become so bureaucratic and paper-laden that 80% of a practitioner’s time is spent form-filling rather than supporting service users.” The author goes on to point out how this process contributes to high caseloads and long hours, which results in rapid burnout. There are also a number of supporting pieces associated with this article that are worth a click.
