Identifying a Brainwashed Child in Family Law Cases

The American Bar Association, Section of Family Law, has published Child Held Hostage: Identifying Brainwashed Children, Presenting a Case and Crafting Solutions (2nd Edition) by Stanley S. Clawar and Brynne V. Rivlin.  The book focuses on how children may be influenced in their testimony in court or during interviews with mental health experts during divorce proceedings, but these issues of parental influence are often present in CHINS and juvenile delinquency cases as well.

For additional information on children testifying in court, particularly during CHINS proceedings, see Working with the Courts in Child Protection, Chapter 7, Going to Court by William G. Jones, Office of Child Abuse and Neglect (2006).

The post Identifying a Brainwashed Child in Family Law Cases first appeared on the Indiana Juvenile Justice Blog.
