Child Welfare Law and Practice: Representing Children, Parents, and Agencies in Child Neglect, Abuse, and Dependency Cases
Child welfare law is complex and ever-changing, and the practice of representing children, parents, and agencies in dependency cases requires extensive knowledge and skill in both legal and non-legal subjects. The need for up-to-date specialized resources is more crucial now than ever before. Child Welfare Law and Practice: Representing Children, Parents, and Agencies in Neglect, Abuse, and Dependency Cases, 4th Edition — more commonly known as “the Red Book” — serves as a reference guide, a study source, and an essential tool for all child welfare practitioners, especially lawyers.
Red Book 4 was edited by Josh Gupta-Kagan, LaShanda Taylor Adams, Melissa Dorris Carter, Kristen Pisani-Jacques, and Vivek S. Sankaran. New contributors, fresh content, and a revised book structure differentiate this latest edition, which includes new chapters on LGBTQ+ youth, racial justice, representing parents and children with disabilities, multidisciplinary advocacy, preventive legal representation, crossover youth, child trafficking, and more.
Designed initially as a study guide for attorneys preparing to take NACC's Child Welfare Law Specialist certification exam, the Red Book serves as a day-to-day guide for child welfare advocates across the country, offering in-depth analysis and instruction on wide variety of topics in the field of child welfare law.
