I am not angry anymore.
I am so glad that alternatives are available for my clients. I often find it best to recommend immediate enrollment in ABS outpatient services for defendants arrested for domestic violence, assaults, or sexual offenses. This helps them not only legally but emotionally and behaviorally. I was instantly able to find services at ABS for clients that speak English, Polish, Russian and other languages.
The hardest decisions I must make are pertaining to the welfare for children suspected of abuse or neglect from homes shattered due to anger, domestic violence, addiction or sexual abuse. Especially when blame is pointed in all directions. Having birth parents’ cooperation with ABS Human Betterment Programs always helps with decisions leading to reunification.
