Abstract

This article describes an interdisciplinary approach to research, practice and policy formation when dealing with issues of importance to children and youth. The authors, a child psychiatrist, a professor of law, and a social worker, discuss the utilization of a team-based approach linking the various disciplines at all levels - from clinical to theoretical - and in a number of arenas - from evaluations of individual children to the study of children's issues.
