  1. Recommend at least one treatment provider who provides services/counseling to the parents/abusers/perpetrators of child abuse. Treatment providers have great insight of the human services and judicial systems.

  2. Please review the Loveland CO death of 15 y/o Nichole Berthoud, who died in 2005. Larimer County DHS should have to answer -who was involved with this case and why wasn't it reveiwed at the appropriate time?
