Product Description

The children and families with whom we interact are seldom what they appear to be at face value; rather, they come to us as a bundle of experiences, many of them traumatic, that we must use all of our skills to decipher. We need investigators to determine their histories; evaluators to determine their family situations, strengths, and needs; therapists and social workers to determine where they are broken and how to repair their wounds; attorneys to determine their desires and advocate for them; guardians ad litem to determine their best interests; judges to put everything in context, bring services to bear, and map out their futures; foster parents and family to love them; academics to tell us what the latest research shows; and policymakers and legislators to give us the framework and funding to make all this work possible.?G% Thomas Rawlings 72 This book describes our state?GVs system of identifying, managing,treating, rehabilitating, and protecting children. That system is complex, and to cover it requires exploring federal and state law and regulations;explaining the work of numerous federal and state agencies; investigating the roles of courts, attorneys, judges, volunteers, and providers; understanding the intricacies of family relationships and child development; considering the effects of mental illness, trauma, drugs, incarceration; and searching out the best methods to treat troubled children and dysfunctional families.  Chapter 1: Child Development and Children in CourtChapter 2: Juvenile DelinquencyChapter 3: DependencyChapter 4: Children in Need of ServicesChapter 5: The Juvenile CourtChapter 6: Forms Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable{mso-style-name:Table Normal”;mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0;mso-tstyle-colband-size:0;mso-style-noshow:yes;mso-style-priority:99;mso-style-parent:””;mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt;mso-para-margin:0in;mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt;mso-pagination:widow-orphan;font-size:10.0pt;font-family:”Cambria”,”serif”;}This book is an Important Resource for:Lawyers **  Mental Health Providers **  Legislators**Social Workers  ** Probation officers ** Foster Parents 72 Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable{mso-style-name:”Table Normal”;mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0;mso-tstyle-colband-size:0;mso-style-noshow:yes;mso-style-priority:99;mso-style-parent:””;mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt;mso-para-margin:0in;mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt;mso-pagination:widow-orphan;font-size:10.0pt;font-family:”Cambria”,”serif”;}
