Predicted Changes in Children's Quality of Life in Decisions Regarding the Removal of Children at Risk from their Homes

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This study raised two questions: 1. Are child protection workers' decisions as to whether or not to keep children at risk at home associated with their expectations of changes in the child's quality of life at home? 2. Is the parents' cooperation with the child protection officer related to the assessment of the child's quality of life and to the decision? The main findings of this paper show a significant relationship between the decision to remove children at risk from home and both expectations that these children's quality of life is likely to deteriorate and assessments of their parents as uncooperative; and, conversely, the decision to keep them at home and the expectation that their quality of life will improve and the assessment of their parents as cooperative.
