The Impact of Turnover on Families Involved in Child Welfare

Turnover rates in the child welfare workforce have been a serious concern for decades. Despite consistent research on the causes of and remedies for turnover, the rate remains too high. How turnover directly impacts children and families continues to be a gap in the research and literature. Additionally, the voices of the communities directly impacted by turnover in the child welfare workforce are often overlooked. Despite these gaps, this brief gathers several resources that look at turnover from the perspectives of families, children, workers, agencies, and other impacted groups. This brief from the US National Child Welfare Workforce Institute consists of thirty resources divided into three sections (impact, community voice, and systems transformation) that examine the impact of turnover and highlight the importance of studying and developing strategies to address this topic.
