Decision-Making in Child Abuse and Neglect.
Wasserman, Saul; Rosenfeld, Alvin
Child Welfare, v45 n6 p515-29 Nov-Dec 1986
Addressed to judges and the legal profession in juvenile justice, this article argues that social attachment theory, particularly parent-child bonding, can be valuable in conceptualizing child abuse and neglect and making decisions about intervention in child abuse and neglect cases. Three categories of deficient parent-child bonds are described and suggested as aids to better courtroom decisions. (HOD/Author)
