Child Protection in Military Communities. The User Manual Series.
Broadhurst, Diane D.; And Others
Intended for use by military personnel involved in child advocacy efforts and by Child Protective Services personnel working in conjunction with the military, this manual describes programs, procedures, and regulations developed to facilitate intervention in cases of child abuse and neglect among military personnel. Initially, an overview of child neglect is provided. The following two chapters (1) describe the relationships between stress associated with the structure and function of the military, and the incidence of child abuse and neglect within military families; and (2) discuss jurisdictional issues related to the families, and (2) discuss jurisdictional issues related to the coordination of military units and civil governments, agencies, and individuals. Military child advocacy programs in the Air Force, Army, and Navy, as well as a model approach to military civilian cooperation are described in the fourth and fifth chapters. Concluding discussions focus on child advocacy in the military overseas and dependents schools. Numerous charts and diagrams indicating primary and secondary responsibilities, organizational interfaces, and other similar content are included in the manual. (RH)
