Synopsis

Children and Adolescents in Need A Legal Primer for the Helping Professional by Virginia G. Weisz

The critical needs of neglected and abused children are explored in this volume. The author discusses the challenges faced by practitioners who must provide the resources and support to help such vulnerable children anticipate the future with hope and confidence. Topics covered include: professional responsibility; physical, emotional and sexual abuse of children; family support; adoption; and mental health issues. Weisz also examines the complex legal and professional issues surrounding the decision to remove children from parents who abuse or neglect them. The book includes case studies to illustrate the efforts required to coordinate multidisciplinary services whose aim is to achieve long-term positive impact on the children.
