Overview

Lost Innocents is an essential follow-up and companion to Beyond Blame: Child Abuse Tragedies Revisited (1993), which reported a re-analysis of the cases at the center of 35 public inquiries into fatal child abuse, with the intention of discovering whether

additional lessons could be learned from the tragedies which would be used to improve child protection practice. In Lost Innocents, the same process of case analysis used in Beyond Blame is applied to a more representative sample of cases in order to elicit further practice

lessons. Reviewing the knowledge about fatal child abuse, Peter Reder and Sylvia Duncan describe the theoretical basis and method of the study and its findings, before going on to discuss their practical implications and their views about the case review process itself. Finally, the

authors discuss whether child abuse fatalities can be predicted or prevented.
