This report provides the results of the 1999 All-County Implementation Survey (ACIS) conducted as part of RAND's statewide evaluation of CalWORKs. It summarizes the responses of all 58 California counties to questions about their experiences to date with implementing CalWORKs. The contract between CDSS and RAND for the Statewide CalWORKs Evaluation requires an All-County Implementation Survey (ACIS) in the Fall of 1998, 1999, and 2000 and specifies a response rate of at least 80 percent. This second ACIS was developed in collaboration with CDSS and other state and county agencies and stakeholders. It was reviewed at the county welfare department (CWD) level by the six coordinators in the evaluation's focus counties. The 1999 questionnaire includes 22 questions, many of which were also included in the 1998 questionnaire. The final survey was mailed out September 29, 1999. By November 16, 1999, responses had been received from all 58 California counties. Overall, the responses to the 1999 ACIS indicate that California counties continue to explore a variety of approaches to CalWORKs program implementation. Their experiences continue to vary significantly throughout the state in terms of what works well and what remains a problem. There are few areas in which all counties agree on a single approach or innovative strategies, though almost all reported some successful strategies. The implementation challenges most frequently noted were use of post employment/job retention services, improving computer systems, and obtaining compliance with required CalWORKs activities. Coordinating the three stages of child care and monitoring and reporting on program performance were the most often cited implementation problems. Fifty-one counties reported that public transportation hinders CalWORKs implementation, and 45 of 58 agree that interagency relationships facilitate implementation.

Examines the effects of the California Work Opportunity and Responsibility to Kids (CalWORKs) program on work activity participation rates of welfare recipients, welfare caseloads, and outcomes for welfare leavers. While the CalWORKs reforms appear to have been responsible for some of the uniform improvement in outcomes shown by the analysis, the robust economy and other policy changes were probably also important.

Prostitution, Trafficking, and Traumatic Stress offers the reader an analysis of prostitution and trafficking as organized interpersonal violence. Even in academia, law, and public health, prostitution is often misunderstood as “sex work.” The book’s 32 contributors offer clinical examples, analysis, and original research that counteract common myths about the harmlessness of prostitution. Prostitution, Trafficking, and Traumatic Stress extensively documents the violence that runs like a constant thread throughout all types of prostitution, including escort, brothel, trafficking, strip club, pornography, and street prostitution. Prostitutes are always subjected to verbal sexual harassment and often have a lengthy history of trauma, including childhood sexual abuse and emotional neglect, racism, economic discrimination, rape, and other physical and sexual violence. International in scope, the book contains cutting-edge contributions from clinical experts in traumatic stress, from attorneys and advocates who work with trafficked women, adolescents, and children and also prostituted women and men. A number of chapters address the complexity of treating the psychological symptoms resulting from prostitution and trafficking. Others address the survivor’s need for social supports, substance abuse treatment, peer support, and culturally relevant services. To stay up-to-date on this powerful subject, visit the “Traffick Jamming” blog at http://www.prostitutionresearch.com/blog. Prostitution, Trafficking, and Traumatic Stress examines: The connections between prostitution, incest, sexual harassment, rape, and domestic violence Clinical symptoms common among those in prostitution, including dissociation, posttraumatic stress disorder, depression, and substance abuse Peer support programs for women escaping prostitution Culturally relevant services for women escaping prostitution The connection between prostitution and trafficking, including trafficking from Mexico to the United States, and prostitution of adolescents in Cambodian brothels Online prostitution How gay male pornography harms gay men Accessing public assistance funds for survivors of prostitution Arguments against legalizing or decriminalizing prostitution From the editor's Preface: Prostitution is to the community what incest is to the family. Slavery, at its height, was normalized in the United States as unpleasant but inevitable, yet it is now considered to be an institution that violated human rights. Perhaps we will at some point in the future look back on prostitution/trafficking with a similar historical perspective. It is my hope that this book will assist the reader in understanding prostitution and trafficking and in how to help women and children escape it.

Reform of welfare is one of the nation's most contentious issues, with debate often driven more by politics than by facts and careful analysis. Evaluating Welfare Reform in an Era of Transition identifies the key policy questions for measuring whether our changing social welfare programs are working, reviews the available studies and research, and recommends the most effective ways to answer those questions. This book discusses the development of welfare policy, including the landmark 1996 federal law that devolved most of the responsibility for welfare policies and their implementation to the states. A thorough analysis of the available research leads to the identification of gaps in what is currently known about the effects of welfare reform. Evaluating Welfare Reform in an Era of Transition specifies what-and why-we need to know about the response of individual states to the federal overhaul of welfare and the effects of the many changes in the nation's welfare laws, policies, and practices. With a clear approach to a variety of issues, Evaluating Welfare Reform in an Era of Transition will be important to policy makers, welfare administrators, researchers, journalists, and advocates on all sides of the issue.

As the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) block grant has been implemented by the states, the Congress has asked questions about a broad range of issues concerning welfare reform's consequences. This report examines: (1) the type of data that will be available from national surveys and studies of welfare reform to help assess progress towards TANF's goals, and (2) the usefulness of the data for assessing TANF's progress nationwide. The major objective was to examine data already collected by national surveys of low-income families and for major studies of welfare reform to identify data available for use in a comprehensive assessment of TANF for the reauth. debate.
