"Through the Eyes of the Child": Early Intervention Inside the Judicial System for Child Protection (Workshop 163)
The Parallel Protection Process (PPP) is a promising early intervention strategy to improve outcomes for children and families in the judicial process due to initial child protection challenges. The PPP offers families entering the court process due to a child protection concern a "family conference" as an alternative to a series of court hearings. This workshop will describe the PPP, provide hands-on information about the family conferences, and review the results of over 20 conferences with a matched sample of 10 families in the traditional court process.
