Overview

An overview for social work students and social workers moving into the field of child protective work, i.e., following up on concerns about the abuse and neglect of children. The author, who is based at Anglia Polytechnic U., primarily addresses the work as it's done in England and Wales, but he writes that much of his text's content is applicable to other parts of the English-speaking world where similar legal systems exist; much of the research cited comes from North America. He describes what the job of child protection social work is and what it requires of workers; looks at the ways children can be abused and neglected, as well as the warning signs and possible long-term consequences; considers the causes of abuse and neglect; and explores some of the difficulties inherent in the work.
