Out-of-Home Placement: Maltreated Children’s Perceptions of Their Placement

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Underlying the belief that children should be placed with relatives (i.e. kinship care) rather than unfamiliar adults following removal from home because of maltreatment is the assumption that kinship care is less stressful for children. However, little research has directly examined children’s feelings about placement. We asked 100 maltreated 4-to-11 year-olds currently residing in various placement contexts about their current placement and placement preferences. Across age, children liked kinship care more than other placements, and children in kinship care were less likely to say that they wanted to return home. Results are relevant to debates about optimal placement for maltreated children.
