Description
Offering readers an accessible overview of the core themes in child abuse and child protection, this text helps readers to understand both the theory and practice involved in child protection, as well as enhancing their thinking skills in line with course requirements.,`Although primarily aimed at social workers, the content of this work is very relevant for other professionals who work with and for children, including trainee lawyers as an introduction to social work practice and the principles of child care law and practice upon which it is based. The book also provides insight for lawyers into the standards to be expected of social workers, which is helpful in children law work. Eileen Munro writes from the perspective of a depth of academic knowledge and many years of experience. I like the clarity of her style, and the ease with which she shares information in a palatable way' - Association of Lawyers for Children Child Protection is part of an exciting new series from SAGE Publications.
