Synopsis: This presentation uses data from the National Survey of Child and Adolescent Well-being database (NSCAW), to examine predictors of out-of-home placement by race/ethnic group. Independent variables in the model include demographic characteristics, type of abuse, child mental health symptomatology and parental/family stressors. The implications of the findings for child welfare and mental health policy and practice, particularly as it relates to the issue of disproportionality, will be discussed.
