The article informs that taking children away from their parents is risky business. Child protective services (CPS) workers are charged with monumental tasks and ever-increasing caseloads. The purpose of this article is to share these management strategies. In light of the enormous impact that CPS workers have on children and their families, it is crucial that CPS managers be allowed to create an atmosphere where workers can successfully do their work. Despite the enormous importance of CPS work, it is consistently regarded as one of the least desirable jobs in any community.
