Preparing Children for Court: A Practitioner′s Guide

"Going to court can be frightening and confusing for children, particularly for those already harmed by a traumatic event. These excellent pamphlets explain criminal and civil court procedures with child-friendly language and illustrations. They are designed to help children understand the child witness′ role and court processes. The authors are to be commended for taking on this important task."

--Sarah H. Ramsey, Professor of Law and Director, Syracuse University College of Law

Every year thousands of cases of child abuse involving young witnesses are referred to the court system. Properly preparing children for the experience of court can minimize the emotional stress and allow them to become more credible witnesses. The first of its kind, Preparing Children for Court, is intended as an aid for social workers, court educators, victim/witness specialists, law enforcement, therapists, and attorneys. Written in an engaging manner, this text divulges the "tricks of the trade" that will allow the child to enter the legal systems without negative consequences.

This text is packaged with three children′s workbooks to facilitate the child′s learning and understanding of the court process. Viewed as an essential toolkit, no professional in the field should be without this volume and its accompanying workbooks.
