Child Neglect : Practice Issues for Health and Social Care, Paperback / softback Book

Child Neglect : Practice Issues for Health and Social Care Paperback / softback

Edited by Brigid Daniel, Julie Taylor

Part of the Best Practice in Working with Children series

Paperback / softback

Description

Neglect is now recognized as leading to significantly poor outcomes for children in the short and long term.

It is a matter of concern for all professionals who work with children.

Children who are neglected are not likely to seek help in their own right and are highly dependent on professionals such as health visitors and schoolteachers identifying and responding to their needs for support and protection. In order to carry out the key tasks of prevention, recognition and response to neglect, practitioners require up-to-date evidence-based information about the aetiology and signs of neglect and what works in prevention and response.

This book addresses the key themes in child neglect, draws on current research and practice knowledge and sets out the implications for practice.

With a joint health and social work focus, this interdisciplinary book is an essential resource for practitioners, academics and policy makers working towards integrated and collaborative childcare services.
