Advocacy Opportunities in the Child Welfare Community

September 23, 2013

This webinar includes a detailed discussion of child protective services’ imperatives and timelines in cases of child abuse and neglect. Focusing on the co-occurrence of domestic violence and child abuse and neglect, Nancy Miller mapped the legal procedures involved in dependency proceedings, including an overview of important timelines and mandates imposed on courts and child protection agencies by the Adoption and Safe Families Act. Ms. Miller also explored opportunities for domestic violence advocates to assist victims of domestic violence as they navigate the complex and intimidating world of child protective services. This webinar was hosted by the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges Resource Center on Domestic Violence: Child Protection and Custody in partnership with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
