All public sector workers in contact with children and families, both in health care and allied services, need access to clearly written information about what to do if they are concerned about the safety and welfare of a child. Ensuring the safety of children who are at risk of harm is not an easy undertaking. It is sometimes difficult to assess the significance of information about a child, to gauge its seriousness or decide what to do next. This handbook will help health service workers negotiate the complexities of child protection practice, with the aim of preventing abuse and neglect and protecting children from further harm once it has occurred. The text explains how the child protection process works. It covers all the key areas of child protection practice, including: risk assessment physical, sexual and emotional abuse neglect the child protection conference key changes in the legal framework and their application in practice.

Based on a qualitative study of child protection practices this book takes a detailed look at what professionals actually 'do', contrasting the relatively straightforward process illustrated in procedural guidance with the uncertainty of the 'real world' of child protection work. Having observed case discussions and child protection conferences and interviewed professionals involved in child protection work, Helen Buckley sets out to clarify the factors that influence decision making in this field. Exploring the practice frameworks and sense-making techniques employed by child care professionals she demonstrates the importance of the cultural, political and organisational context in which the work is carried out. The processing of reported child protection concerns is followed from the earliest stages of identification to assessment, conferencing and long-term monitoring. In addition, data from interviews with parents who have been involved in child protection investigations provides a vitally important perspective for professionals. Emphasising that practice is a dynamic process requiring constant reflection and review, this book looks beyond procedural guidelines to help professionals, academics and policy makers involved with child assessment and protection to gain a deeper understanding of their work.

The third edition of this best-selling handbook covers all aspects of child maltreatment, including physical abuse, sexual abuse and neglect. The third edition will undergo a major overhaul by reorganizing the content categories according to each form of abuse. The previous two editions divided up the content by psychological, pychosocial, medical and legal aspects of abuse. Through the review process we learned that many reviews would prefer the organization to be grouped by each form of neglect (physical, sexual, emotional) rather than by the corresponding aspects. In addition, the third edition will have new and updated chapters, including the history of child protection, prevention, reporting, foster care and adoption, the criminal justice system, cultural competence and interviewing. The entire book will have a focus on evidence based practices which will be discussed in all parts. In addition, each part will contain a similar structure covering definitions, legal aspects, interventions and treatment. This edition is poised to be the most successful edition yet and will include contributions for THE leading experts in each corresponding area. Features and benefits include: The most comprehensive resource for individuals working within the child welfare system and for students preparing to work in child welfare and child protective services. A compilation by the leading experts in each area. An easy-to-read and comprehend format which allows for easy comparison across maltreatment areas. Experienced editor who is very thorough, efficient, and detail oriented.

Good Practice in Child Protection is a timely, practical manual for use by all professionals who work with child abuse cases. It is soundly based on theory but, taking into consideration the vast complexities of child protection work and the difficulty of the decisions that have to be made, its main emphasis is on the practice and experiences of the agencies which deal with the work on a daily basis. Designed to be used in any setting to facilitate learning about theory, practice and the multi-disciplinary approach, and including exercises to improve practice in specific areas of child protection work, the book emphasises throughout how the contributions of all agencies can best be used and co-ordinated to help the child and his or her family.
