The authors confront many difficult questions such as: Are the rights that our nation's laws ascribe to children commensurate with their capabilities and needs? How should laws governing the punishment of crime acknowledge developmental differences between adult and juvenile offenders? Throughout the book, the authors consider (a) current laws and policies relating to children; (b) how social science research can test assumptions behind child-relevant laws and policies; (c) ways that courts can become more receptive to social science recommendations; and (d) challenges faced in the 21st century as our society continues its struggle to accommodate children's concerns within our legal system. With its unique integration of psychological research, social policy, and legal analysis, the volume is an important resource for any professional concerned with children and the law.Children, Social Science, & the LawChildrenLegal status, laws, etcUnited StatesSocial case work with childrenUnited StatesChild welfareUnited StatesChildrenLegal status, laws, etc.Social case work with childrenChild welfare346.7301/35Bottoms Bette L.Kovera Margaret Bull1966-McAuliff Bradley D.1971-UkCbUPUkCbUPBOOK9910450292903321Children, social science, and the law2483670UNINA
