Child welfare law is complex and ever-changing, and the practice of representing children, parents, and agencies in dependency cases requires extensive knowledge and skill in both legal and non-legal subjects. This 3rd edition of Child Welfare Law and Practice ("The Red Book") captures the wide body of information and expertise that define child welfare law as a specialized field, from legal standards in federal law to techniques for interviewing children to innovations in serving older youth.

The 35 chapters in this edition include extensive updates and revisions from the 2nd edition, including new chapters on issues such as coping with secondary trauma and engaging in systemic advocacy for policy change. The National Association of Counsel for Children (NACC) has certified dependency attorneys and judges as Child Welfare Law Specialists (CWLS) since 2006. This treatise serves readers as a practice reference, a training manual, and a study guide for the CWLS certification exam.
