The Anguish Behind Understanding How the Family Courts Work

"Bazza" is a professional social worker with in-depth experience of working in the family courts protecting the rights - and the futures - of children.

For good professional reasons, she has to remain anonymous.

But on this podcast edition she provides us with an invaluable insight into how the family courts arrive at their decisions.

Decisions which make fundamental differences to people's lives and most especially, to traumatized children's lives.

"Bazza" explains about the research, the soul-seeking, and the genuine desire to do the right thing that goes into the court's pronouncements.
