Abstract:Findings revealed that battered mothers and professionals in the child welfare system agreed on many of the same child welfare practices and characteristics of child welfare professionals as facilitating reunification process. However, there were a number of practices and characteristics of the professionals on which mothers and professionals disagreed. Divergence in participants' perspectives was centered primarily on whether or not the intervention should focus on the family as a whole including the batterer, or mainly on the mother-child relationship. Implications for social work practice and policy as well as future research are discussed.
