Family Preservation or Child Safety? Associations between child welfare workers' experience, position, and perspectives

Assessing a number of worker characteristics, an analysis of the Dalgleish Scale (an instrument designed to measure the perspectives of workers across the continuum of child safety versus family preservation beliefs) revealed that staff who have worked in child welfare longer are more likely to be oriented toward family preservation, whereas staff working in the field for a shorter time period or rating the shared vision among staff higher are more likely to be oriented toward child safety.
