The Children’s Commission recently released a Toolkit for Attorneys Representing Parents and Children in Child Protection Cases. Though attorneys are the primary audience, it is a wonderful resource for CASA staff and volunteers.
The toolkit covers essential legal basics, including hearing checklists. It also covers special issues related to children and families in child protection, including trauma-informed advocacy, child well-being, normalcy, youth with dual status and incarceration.
Thank you to the Children’s Commission Legal Representation Committee for all the work that went into putting together this excellent resource!
