Abstract (Summary)

A review of the research on family preservation reveals that Latino's are often studied in comparison to other groups and less as a unique sub-group with a focus on the issues and contexts that affect them, including factors that contribute to successful FP outcomes. The purpose of this study was to examine the family, case and service characteristics of Latino families who experienced a successful termination with family preservation. This study employed a convenience sampling method with a purposive sample that included the client information of 74 families from the Los Angeles area. Data was collected using a case review form. Results from this study suggest that successful families often require services for a longer period of time than initially assessed for, accessed a combination of clinical and concrete services, and participated in home visits on weekly basis with the help of a consistent in home outreach counselor.
