Why should you buy Durable Solutions

 

The conference assembled a uniquely qualified group of contributors, drawn from the many professions involved in the resolution of child welfare problems. This book brings together their papers and offers both theoretical background and practical experience aimed at ensuring that solutions work for children in the long-term.

The book examines the latest thinking on:

  • Court experiences and development outcomes
  • Models for achieving successful agreed and ordered outcomes in private law cases
  • Gender, parenting and the courts
  • Contact in private and public law cases - managing two or more families
  • Permanence for looked after children
  • The way forward - ideas for action
