The Myth of Best Interest: Why Good Intentions are not Good Enough

Presented by Jane Malpass and Jane Thompson

This 2-hour presentation is based on the book of the same name and grows out of Jane & Jane’s combined 50+ years of child welfare experience, in both the social work and legal fields. Their careers joined in 1981 as social work and legal consultants to county departments of social services in North Carolina. As they each provided training to separate segments of the child welfare system, they quickly recognized the need for all the parties to work together toward a timely, appropriate permanent plan for each child in the system.
