Greenbook FAQ

What is the Greenbook?
Effective Intervention in Domestic Violence & Child Maltreatment Cases: Guidelines for Policy and Practice, also known as the "Greenbook," is a set of recommendations designed to help dependency courts and child welfare and domestic violence agencies better serve families experiencing violence. The Family Violence Department of the National Council of Juvenile & Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ) brought together a diverse, expert committee to develop the "Greenbook" over many months. Its recommendations are being used, formally and informally, by hundreds of communities across the nation and around the world.
