This webinar considers why “normal” experiences are so important and explores implementation of the “reasonable and prudent parent standard.” Target audience: child welfare professionals from NC’s public and private child-placing agencies and Guardian ad Litem (GAL) program staff, volunteers, and attorneys.   (Event Date: 11/3/2015)
