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.
