This is an excellent resource! it is well-structured and there is much to learn from the components of this moving and realistic case study.

A great case study for the field of social science and more specifically clinical work. I have referred this case study to students after hearing that they will be involved with protective services in dealing with their patients. They have found it helpful. While it looks a bit different in each state and even more different across the pond, this is a good learning object for anyone working in social sciences.
