Adolescent Neglect : Research, Policy and Practice, Paperback / softback Book

Adolescent Neglect : Research, Policy and Practice Paperback / softback

Part of the Safeguarding Children Across Services series

Paperback / softback


Adolescent neglect is a significant problem within child protection, but focus on child neglect and other forms of maltreatment means that it can often be overlooked. This book outlines how adolescent neglect differs from child neglect, the context of why it is overlooked, how it is defined, the causes and consequences of neglect, young people's views, and what professionals can do.

Based on original research, the book establishes an evidence base and considers the implications for policy and practice.

The concluding chapter sets out a practice-based framework for recognizing and working with adolescent neglect.

Each chapter includes reflection points to stimulate thinking on key issues.

This will be essential reading for all those who work with young people, particularly those in social work, health services and education, as well as academics, policymakers and students in these fields.
