Rights and Responsibilities of Young People in New York. A Legal Guide for Human Service Providers. Revised and Updated.
Morrissey, James M.
This manual is designed for human service providers--including social workers, counselors, teachers, child care workers, probation officers, nurses and physicians--to help them with questions about the legal rights and responsibilities of young people in New York State. The document is directed at human service providers because they are seen as persons to whom young people are likely to turn for help, and because such providers are frequently unable to offer informed assistance on legal matters. The seven chapters cover: (1) an overview; (2) minors and the family; (3) minors and public assistance; (4) minors and school; (5) minors and medical treatment; (6) minors, the courts, and the police; and (7) miscellaneous. It should be noted that while the manual is designed to provide accurate and authoritative information about the rights and responsibilities of young people in New York state, the information is not the equivalent of rendered legal advice. Readers also should be aware that the information on laws and their interpretation, while up to date, is subject to changes, as all laws are. (DB)
