What Happens after the Care and Protection Petition?: Reabuse in a Court Sample.
Murphy, J. Michael; And Others
Child Abuse and Neglect: The International Journal, v16 n4 p485-93 Jul-Aug 1992
Of 206 cases of serious child mistreatment brought before a metropolitan juvenile court on Care and Protection Petitions, 63 were dismissed. During a 2-year follow-up period, 18 of these dismissed cases had substantiated reports of further mistreatment and 10 subsequently returned to court. Six percent of those children ordered removed from parental custody also returned to court. (Author/DB)
