The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Searching for the Sources of Error in Child Protection: When We Make Errors, Why Are They So Hard to Correct?

Wattenberg, Esther.

This article provides a summary of a presentation by Eileen Munro, reader in social policy at the London School of Economics, at a November 2005 forum called ムSorting Out the Evidence for Interventions that Work in Child Protection.' The article reviews how the child protection system typically responds to unexplained deaths, and suggests as an alternative a systems-approach that considers such factors as case worker skill and training, stability of resources in managing caseloads, and organizational context.
