I found this book a useful addition to safeguarding children education programmes. I particulary liked the concept of 'poverty and social exclusion' and also the chapter on domestic abuse and its' effects on children. The use of exercises based on practice is a really good addition to teaching this difficult area
A highly useful introductory text on this important area of social work practice.
An excellent introduction to Child Protection. Case studies provide valuable insight into a range of Safeguarding issues. All Child Branch Nursing Students should read this book.
