The Legal Aspects of Protective Services for Abused and Neglected Children. A Manual.
Caulfield, Barbara A.
Child abuse and neglect is a problem of concern to local communities, state legislatures, state agencies and the federal government. In providing protective services, welfare departments encounter legal aspects concerning law enforcement officials, attorneys and the judicial system. This manual can provide practical guidance to those who are protecting abused children, helping involved families correct abusing situations, and working with the courts when judicial actions arise. Major sections focus on investigation and diagnosis, evaluation to determine the need to go to court, the rights of parents and children, a legal glossary, and advanced legal concepts. (Author/BMW)
