This book provides cutting-edge information available on topics such as child abuse, children's eyewitness testimony, divorce and custody, juvenile crime, and children's rights.


Mostly psychologists, but also contributors from other disciplines such as law and criminology, fill what they deemed a need for a broad resource on children and the law that researchers, legal scholars, policy makers, and front-line professionals could use for advice and inspiration. Eighteen contributions are arranged in sections on children's rights, their capabilities, and society's responsibilities; family change; juvenile aggression and juvenile justice; childrens as victims and witnesses; and future directions for policy and research.
