Handbook for Child Protection Practice


Handbook for Child Protection Practice by Howard Dubowitz

`We found it useful, informative and with good references, that will help the reader to look further if the need arises... we can recommend this handbook for professionals working in the field of child protection' - International Journal of Adolescent Medical Health Drawing on theory, research and clinical practice experience, the contributors cover issues facing social workers. They provide a view of child neglect which moves beyond the current child welfare focus on parental omissions in care. Organized in question and answer format, topics covered include: engaging with the client; initial assessments for factors such as neglect and physical and sexual abuse; how to assess the family; interventions with various different emphases; and safeguarding the social workers well-being - legally, physically and mentally.


The timing of the publication with the revised Working Together guidelines could not be more advantageous. This book is a unique and important contribution to child care literature. No agency should be without. * Child Abuse Review *
