Preventing Families' 'Drift Into Failure'

Description

From its inception, the “Spotlight on Arizona’s Kids” project was a different type of initiative undertaken by Morrison Institute for Public Policy and none more important – the safety and well-being of children whose lives intersect with the child welfare system. This multi-year project, funded by Arizona Community Foundation (ACF), includes data and expertise provided by Arizona Department of Child Safety (DCS), along with input from national and local child welfare experts. To date, the project has produced five publications that examine the breadth and complexity of issues related to child neglect with the goal of informing effective policy in Arizona.

Supervisory Neglect in Arizona: Facts, Issues, Opportunities

This is the fourth in a series of briefs in which Morrison Institute for Public Policy will report on selected aspects of Arizona’s child welfare system. Morrison Institute’s first white paper discussed the less visible but more common side of child maltreatment: neglect. The second white paper examined family conditions that can influence a family’s subtle “drift” towards unsafe situations that often correlate with neglect, as well as how different types of prevention might help interrupt the “drift into failure.” The third paper analyzed Arizona Department of Child Safety data to identify the prevalence of various types of neglect in Arizona reports. This paper highlights some key conclusions from the neglect analysis and identifies future areas for study and analysis as part of the Spotlight on Arizona’s Kids project. Future papers will research, analyze and discuss prevention services in Arizona and elsewhere, with an emphasis on best practices. These collective efforts are intended to help state leaders, child advocates and others discuss and identify the most-effective child abuse and neglect prevention strategies. Spotlight on Arizona’s Kids is funded by the Arizona Community Foundation

This is the third in a series of briefs in which Morrison Institute for Public Policy will report on selected aspects of Arizona’s child welfare system.

Spotlight on Arizona’s Kids is intended to help state leaders, child advocates, and others develop the most effective prevention strategies.

Morrison Institute’s first white paper discussed the less visible but more common side of child maltreatment: neglect. Our second white paper discussed family conditions that can influence a family’s subtle “drift” towards unsafe situations that often correlate with neglect and examined how the different types of prevention might help interrupt the “drift into failure.”

This paper analyzes Arizona Department of Child Safety data to identify the prevalence of various types of neglect in Arizona reports. Future papers will research, analyze and discuss prevention services in Arizona and elsewhere, with an emphasis on best practices.

These collective efforts are intended to help state leaders, child advocates and others discuss and identify the most-effective child abuse and neglect prevention strategies.

Spotlight on Arizona’s Kids is funded by the Arizona Community Foundation.
