This title is a comprehensive sourcebook and reference for the wide range of practical, theoretical and legal issues which all health and social work professionals must know and understand if they are to work in the field of child protection. It provides a practical and evidence-based account of the main key and contemporary developments in child protection practice in the UK, particularly reflecting Government guidelines and proposals. With media focus so often on the failures of care, this book is intended to provide all the members who comprise a care team with the underpinning and practical knowledge to carry out their work with confidence.
