Synopsis

What do the courts require of a clinical expert in child and adolescent psychiatry? How can clinical expert opinion be developed to improve family justice? In the decade following the Children Act 1989 two issues have emerged as indisputable. First, care proceedings are a multi-disciplinary exercise and second, child and adolescent psychiatrists are key players providing the majority of expert evidence. This book is based upon a study that is the first to analyse and digest the views and practice of these clinicians after more than a decade's experience with the Children Act. The text examines the Act itself and what courts require of experts; the institutional and contractual base from which these clinicians approach medico-legal work; their own views of their added value to proceedings; and how this field of work should be taken forward, both by the family justice system and by the clinical community. In a policy environment in which multi-disciplinary and multi-agency approaches to child abuse and neglect are vital and where evidence-based practice increasingly dictates clinical approaches, this book provides vital information for setting a new agenda for current practice and future policy developments. It addresses complex and controversial issues in this field and the text will be central to future education and training initiatives for: new and established child and adolescent psychiatristslawyers, and academics in law, social work and socio-legal studiesjudges, magistrates and court clerksguardians and court welfare officers in CAFCASSsocial workers, team managers and heads of children and families services in local authorities. Features of this volume include: a thorough examination of the Children Act 1989detailed discussion of what the courts require of a clinical expertdiscussion of how clinical opinion can be developed to improve family justice
