Book Spotlight - Planned Parenting Evaluations: Applied Research for the Family Court, 2nd ed.

Posted by Peel Law Association on 5 April 2024


Information provided on Oxford University Press' website:

More so than in any other form of forensic evaluation, mental health professionals who conduct parenting plan evaluations must have an understanding of the most current evidence in the areas of child development, optimal parenting plans across various populations, behavioral psychology, family violence, and legal issues to inform their opinions. In addition, family law judges and legal professionals require the best available evidence to support their decisions and positions.

Parenting Plan Evaluations has become the go-to source for the most current empirical evidence in the field of child custody disputes. Fully updated in this Second Edition, the volume continues its focus on translating and implementing research associated with the most important topics within the family court. It presents an organized and in-depth analysis of the latest research and offers specific recommendations for applying these findings to the issues in child custody disputes.

Overview:

  • Offers specific recommendations for applying research to the parenting plan evaluation process
  • Examines which research findings provide valid information and conclusions based on the quality of the research design and methods
  • Written in an accessible format for individuals not familiar with research methods
  • Provides legal and mental health professionals with evidence-based conclusions regarding each issue discussed
     

New to this Edition:

  • Discusses new topics such as dealing with allegations of sexual abuse, children's memory, and how to handle overnight visits with noncustodial parents
  • Updated throughout with empirical evidence based on the most current published literature
