Children in Crisis: Chelseas Story
Since she was a toddler, Chelsea has displayed severe behavioral problems that have left her mother, Linda, unable to care for her. Dramatic mood swings, violent outbursts, and false calls to emergency 911 operators claiming her mother is dead all led Linda to finally give her child away to the custody of the state.
This DVD covers Chelsea’s story from its beginning when her mother makes the wrenching decision to turn her daughter over to the state for care and rehabilitation, her placement at a residential treatment facility, and the follow-up seven years later. Included are interviews with Chelsea and her mother, the family’s social worker, placement facility staff, and others.
