Drug Exposed Infants in the Social Welfare System and Juvenile Court.
Sagatun-Edwards, Inger J.; And Others
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v19 n1 p83-92 Jan 1995
Case files (n=284) from a social services agency and juvenile court were reviewed to investigate how cases involving drug-exposed infants were processed. Data showed an overrepresentation of African American and Hispanic cases and underrepresentation of Caucasian and Asian cases. About 80% of children were removed from the mother; about one-third were later returned. (Author/JDD)
