Allegations of maltreatment of children in foster care are made for an array of reasons. It is important to identify those instances in which the child is in danger or at risk of harm. Responses to and investigations of these allegations must be conducted in a skilled, objective manner to ensure the child’s safety; prevent unnecessary disruption to the child, foster family, and birthparents; and minimize trauma to all parties. The Child Welfare League of America's Best Practice Guidelines for Child Maltreatment in Foster Care provide comprehensive, quality practices for the prevention of, response to, and investigation of out-of-home maltreatment. Using sound administrative and casework practices, professionals learn how to prevent such incidents whenever possible and competently investigate allegations of abuse and neglect in foster families.
