Subject:Re: information for Family Court Judges

Cheryl I don't think there is any compelling evidence on family preservation. Many discussions on this list indicate that family preservation did not work. But other researchers could speak in greater detail about these programs.

The information I am after is not related to laws/legislation but more regarding impact/outcome for children/families that would be compelling for judges/magistrates. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Cheryl Majka Project Officer Community Services nsw
