Over the past several decades a national model for child welfare practice has emerged. In Child Welfare Law and Practice, also known as "The Red Book", experienced NACC authors and child welfare advocates have captured and refined that model, offering a comprehensive guide for those who make child welfare advocacy their priority. Designed as a study guide for attorneys preparing to take the NACC Child Welfare Law 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. Our completely revised third edition includes these new and expanded topics: Indian Child Welfare Act; investigative interviewing of the child; counseling legal clients who are children; the practice of child welfare casework; child safety; representing parents; federal due process; educations goals for children in foster care and the transition of youth from foster care to adulthood.
