ial and emotional needs of these at-risk children.

"We are confident that the resulting guidelines are in-depth, relevant and practical, providing direction in the most needed child welfare topics," Dr. Jensen said. "They specifically address the most critical issues in the field, including the all too common problems of over- and under-treatment." "Children in the child welfare system have experienced such trauma that it is incumbent upon all of us to use the best tools and Evidence Based Practices available for their care," said Robert L. Hartman, MSW, executive vice president and chief operating officer of DePelchin Children's Center, the largest and most comprehensive provider of children's social and mental health services in the Houston area. The guidelines have been published in a special edition of the journal Child Welfare (Vol. 88, No. 1) and are available by calling 800-407-6273 and online at www.cwla.org.

Since 1920, the Child Welfare League of America (CWLA) has been the nation's pre-eminent organization dedicated to ensuring that disadvantaged and vulnerable children are protected from harm and have the tools and resources they need to grow into the healthy and happy adults we want them to become. CWLA is the trusted authority for professionals who work with children and the only national organization with members from both public and private agencies, providing unique access and influence to all sectors of the children's services field.
