I want to tell you of a great website for those needing help in fighting against child abuse, for child protection. It is the website for the National Child Protection Training Center. The center is run by Victor Vieth and has a host of resources, webinars, conference notices, and more. Especially check out their publications page. On this page you can find some excellent full-text, free, information about the legal process and how to navigate child testimony and deal with defense attorneys who are trying to discredit children. Check out some of the titles:
“A children’s courtroom bill of rights: 7 pretrial motions prosecuting attorneys should routinely file”
“Vicarious trauma in child sex abuse prosecutors”
The website has a few hiccups but I recommend you check it out for helps if you know of folks going through the legal system regarding child abuse and neglect.

Thank you so much for this info. This is a much needed website that I will ad to my list of resources.
Thank you for mentioning us in your article! If you are looking for resources for parents, too – please look at our programs, the Jacob Wetterling Resource Center (www.jwrc.org) and the Center for Effective Discipline (www.stophitting.org).
