What we know -and need to do- about the intersection of trauma in Juvenile Justice and Child Welfare (a report from the Juvenile Law Center)by ATS Staff on 08/05/14
"This publication is the product of research and discussions with psychologists, psychiatrists, public policy experts, and lawyers who represent children in both the juvenile justice and child welfare systems. Many of the ideas expressed emerged from a convening hosted by Juvenile Law Center in Philadelphia in January 2013. The convening brought together experts across disciplines to grapple with the ramifications of raising trauma in the context of courtroom advocacy, as well as more fundamental and definitional questions about what trauma is and why it matters."
