Crafting the "Greenbook": Framers Reflect on the Vision, Process, and Lessons Learned

Journal of Interpersonal Violence, v23 n7 p981-1006 2008
Guided by research and the experiences of judges nationwide, the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges made a commitment in 1998 to improve community response to families experiencing domestic violence and child maltreatment. A year later, the council's work culminated in a set of recommendations commonly called the "Greenbook," which summoned child welfare agencies, domestic violence service providers, and dependency courts to implement internal changes and collaborate to address co-occurring domestic violence and child maltreatment. In 2000, the federal government funded six community-based demonstration programs to implement the "Greenbook" recommendations. As part of the evaluation of the "Greenbook" initiative, the evaluation team asked the national experts who helped frame the "Greenbook" to reflect on the processes used and the decisions that shaped the document. In addition, the experts were asked to describe their expectations for the systems and communities that implemented the recommendations, including anticipated challenges.
