Intensive family preservation services: The perceptions of client families
This qualitative study seeks to understand the correlation between intensive family preservation services and family functioning in those families who have participated in services. The focus is on the perceptions of client families with respect to the impact of services on family functioning including communication, family dynamics, and parenting skills. The discussion centers on the responses of client families to a narrowly constructed survey instrument designed to capture their perceptions with respect to the services provided by case workers.
