When you are called to testify in a case involving a child, you are participating in a process that may have an irreversible impact upon that child's future. By acquiring the knowledge and skills to ensure that you are an effective witness, you may help to prevent harm to a child who has already suffered at the hands of an adult, or prevent harm of other children in the future. In some cases, you may help to ensure that the court does not make an inappropriate finding of abuse or neglect.

Written by lawyers with extensive experience in the fields of child protection and Family Law, this book provides a practical guide to the Canadian legal system, the court process and testifying in court. While police officers and others regularly involved in court proceedings will find it helpful, it will be especially useful to those who only occasionally enter the courtroom world such as child-protection workers, social workers, teachers, doctors and other health-care professionals, counselors, shelter workers, psychologists, daycare, childcare or nursery school personnel, and members of the clergy.

Robin Vogl, LL.B., now a lawyer in private practice, was Counsel to the Simcoe County Children's Aid Society from 1991-1999 and previously worked as Senior Counsel for the Children's Aid Society of Metro Toronto. She also worked previously as a Youth Court Prosecutor, and as a consultant to the Institute for the Prevention of Child Abuse, the Metropolitan Toronto Special Committee on Child Abuse, and the Ministry of Community and Social Services. She co-authored Canadian Child Welfare Law (Thompson Educational Publishing).

Nicholas Bala, B.A., LL.B., LL.M., is a Professor in the Faculty of Law at Queen's University, Kingston, Ontario. He has published extensively about legal issues related to child abuse, divorce and young offenders, including co-authoring Canadian Child Welfare Law (Thompson Educational Publishing). He is frequently interviewed by the media, and his work has often been cited by the courts.
