A unique family law resource, this book is written by a board-certified forensic psychologist with extensive experience in working with children, and an attorney who almost exclusively represents children in dependency court matters. Bringing this experience to the book, the authors focus on the real-world issues critical in working effectively with child clients in dependency and family court settings. The authors look at the psychological issues often represented in these cases, including trauma, child development, domestic violence, high-conflict separation and divorce, alienated or resistant children, and other special circumstances. They also look at the professional responsibilities involved, including ethical issues in representing children, risks of bias in your work, and recognizing the professional toll this work can take.

Accessible equally to lawyers and related professionals with any level of experience, the authors conceptualize the role of the children’s representative and offer intriguing thoughts about how this role can—and must--evolve in the future.
