An emotional abuse of process?

Community Care carries an interesting article on Alerting Professionals to Signs of Emotional Abuse in which it draws attention to the rather excellent model multi-agency practice guidelines on identifying and evidencing emotional abuse developed in Nottingham.

It is perhaps ironic then that it is Nottinghamshire City Council which was criticised for its action in unlawfully removing a child from its mother within two hours of the child being born and ordered to return the child immediately as the Times reports. The case came before Mr Justice Munby of Re X Council v B fame. Ouch.

Plainly Nottinghamshire had not read my article on the Interim Removal of Children from their Parents on the main Family Law Week site.
