Child Protection, the Courts & Social Workers, Hardback Book

Child Protection, the Courts & Social Workers Hardback

Edited by Terrance R. Langely


Each day the safety and well-being of children across the Nation are threatened by child abuse and neglect.

Intervening effectively in the lives of these children and their families is not the sole responsibility of a single agency or professional group, but a shared community concern.

This book provides a foundation for understanding child maltreatment and the roles and responsibilities of various practitioners in its prevention, identification, assessment, and treatment.

The courts play a central role in making decisions regarding the protection of children who have been maltreated.

Understanding this process is crucial for any professional involved in child protection.

By having a thorough knowledge of this legal process and by working in partnership with the courts, child protective services (CPS) caseworkers and other professionals can work toward the safety, permanency, and well-being of children more effectively.
