Addressing Child Abuse and Neglect in Indian Families
The Indian Health Service and the Bureau of Indian Affairs have co-sponsored the development of a handbook to assist professionals who deal with the issue of child abuse and neglect among Indian families. The online publication, Child Protection in Indian Country, provides an overview of the legal and policy aspects of such issues as child abuse reporting, criminal background checks of persons who work with children, and developing child protections.
