This book offers a detailed analysis of the issues and challenges in the theory and practice of child protection. It is based on the author's research carried out in the United Kingdom and Australia and arises out of a recognised need to enhance cooperation among the major agencies involved in children's welfare today. Governments across the world are radically reviewing policy in the child welfare field. In the midst of these new initiatives it is the managers and practitioners who must understand the context of change in order to do their work effectively.The book examines:*The social and cultural definitions of child abuse and child sexual abuse *Social constructions of childhood *The origins of child protection practice *Contemporary multiagency approaches to child protection management *Organizational perspectives in social work practice The author critically examines the social factors that have led to the rise in the incidence of child abuse, as well as the expansion of definitions of child abuse and child sexual abuse. The book concludes with recommendations for the future development of child welfare services.Principles of Child Protection is important reading for child protection practitioners, managers, policy makers and students on qualifying and post-qualifying courses in social work, social policy, sociology and child protection.
