Legal Response to Child Abuse and Neglect: Assessment, Treatment, and Prevention.
Plum, Henry J.
Child Abuse and Neglect: The International Journal, v15 suppl 1 p31-37 1991
Recommendations are made for improving the existing child protection system by consideration of children as legal persons, parental duty instead of parental rights, and the state's duty. Solutions involve recognizing what works, developing political astuteness, marketing child protective services as a business, balancing centralization and regionalization of services, speeding up legal response, and increasing accountability.
