Every day the lives of children and families are directly and profoundly impacted by thousands of decisions that are made by child protection workers, supervisors, managers, juvenile court judges, and other professionals. The Decision Making Ecology framework presented here represents an effort to advance the field of Child Welfare decision-making using the knowledge gained from the decision-making sciences. It is a framework for organizing decision-making research in Child Welfare and places the topic squarely in the context of actual protective-service operations in this field. This is done because decisions take place within an agency culture where a systemic context combines with the case decisions made by the management and staff of the agency.
