Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Creating Safer Organisations is a wonderfully hands-on, functional guide that not only raises awareness of the issue of organisational abuse but provides an empirical framework to the media-focused discourse on this topic."  (NOTA News, March 2013)

"This is where organisations should head immediately for guidance on safer recruitment, organisational planning and the safe use of space... Creating Safer Organisations offers a firm, accessible and engagine platform on which further work can build."  (Journal of Sexual Aggression, March 2013)

“The book flows well from topic to topic and there is a good use of examples. It provides an overview of the literature and research in each area it covers and weaves the outcomes together to create a holistic view of how children are either protected or put at risk by current practices.  However, the real strength and value of the book to professionals is the evidence-based way it provides practical advice on creating safer organisations.”  (Child and Adolescent Mental Health, 1 September 2013)
