|About the book:
In the last couple of years, in research, policy and practice concerning
the care and treatment of vulnerable and troublesome children and their
families, a lot of attention has been paid to the question of the effectiveness
of the applied interventions: do they work? Our knowledge about ‘evidencebased’
approaches to effective child, youth and family interventions has
been growing during the last decade.
An issue of at least as much scientific interest and societal importance is the
question of how and why these interventions work. This book – published
in the context of the 11th Biennial International Conference of the European
Scientific Association on Residential and Foster care for children and
adolescents (EUSARF) at Groningen, the Netherlands – offers a broad and
compact view on the latest international findings and provides insight into
the factors and conditions which underlie the outcomes – positive and
negative – of current child and family interventions and arrangements.
The volume is a reference work for all those practitioners, academics,
researchers, managers, policymakers, students and all others interested in
developments and research findings on interventions regarding vulnerable
and troublesome children and their families.
