"Family Autonomy" or "Coercive Intervention"? Ambiguity and Conflict in the Proposed Standards for Child Abuse and Neglect.
Bourne, Richard; Newberger, Eli H.
Criticized are standards for child abuse and neglect drafted by the Juvenile Justice Standards Project of the Institute of Judicial Administration and the American Bar Association. It is claimed that the standards unduly limit state intervention. Case study examples are cited and revisions are suggested for the following areas: providing services in cases of nonserious harm, the future endangerment requirment, court jurisdiction to order removal for serious harm, and the reporting process.
