Best Practice Courts: Improving Practice in Child Abuse and Neglect Cases (Workshop 161)
Workshop panelists describe best practices implemented in their jurisdictions based on two publications prepared by the Permanency Planning for Children Department of the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges to improve how courts handle child abuse and neglect cases: Resource Guidelines: Improving Court Practice in Child Abuse & Neglect Cases (1995) and Adoption and Permanency Guidelines: Improving Court Practice in Child Abuse and Neglect (2000). Additionally, the session presents practical approaches to enable participants to create best practice courts in their home jurisdictions. Participants receive copies of the Resource Guidelines and the Adoption and Permanency Guidelines.
