Item Description...
Hope Publishing House Longtime Presbyterian layperson, Dr. Kent S. Miller, emeritus professor of psychology at the Florida State University, Tallahassee, who had spent much of his professional life focused on mental disability law and the relations between the mental health and the criminal justice systems, decided to volunteer for a couple years in the Department of Children and Families in Florida to try to understand why they were getting such bad press. This book is a result of this time spent with the Florida DCF and is an analysis of the current crisis in the child welfare scene based on the author's involvement with a program that has been racked with the scandals of missing and murdered children. If as Christians we are to care for the little ones and our neighbors, then Dr. Milller posits that we must address this concern immediately for we are sabotaging our nation's future by abandoning our at-risk children--to say nothing of incurring the wrath of our Lord who demonstrated a preferential option for children--as well as for the poor.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Very Important and Well-Written Book  Oct 28, 2009
This book is a must-read for anyone who is concerned about the incidence of child abuse in the United States. It is easy to read and very informative. The author, Kent S. Miller, presents all sides of the controversy as to when a child needs to be removed from a home and when other alternatives such as parenting classes are a better option. The problems with our current child welfare systems are addressed as well as the neccesity of having a system to protect children from abuse. Excellent book!
