Resource for Spanish Language CPS Referrals

Designed by Edward Stresino as a resource for social workers, the English/Spanish Child Abuse Phrase Book: Family-Social Worker Interview Manual aims to remove communication barriers encountered during CPS referrals. It has been used in California for years. While conversational knowledge of each language is assumed, the book is useful for both fluent and non-fluent speakers. The book is divided into sections that correspond to the steps in the referral process; it also defines child abuse regulations and key vocabulary. For more info or to order visit
