Published Jan 24, 2008, Child Welfare League of America, John A. Tuell
The work and progress in the numerous state and local jurisdictions around the country that have partnered with CWLA has also been highlighted in Child Welfare & Juvenile Justice Systems Integration Initiative: A Promising Progress Report. These jurisdictions have used the framework outlined in the Guidebook to develop statutes, guiding principles, protocols, procedures, legal analyses, new multisystem collaborations, and other reform measures to effectively intervene and interrupt the costly trajectory of maltreated youth deeper into the delinquency and criminal justice systems.
Provides jurisdicational examples including: King County, Washington; Los Angeles County, California; South Dakota; The U.S. Virgin Islands; Arizona; and Colorado.
