Child Protection

Child Protection

December 2006 | 200 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
`Although primarily aimed at social workers, the content of this work is very relevant for other professionals who work with and for children, including trainee lawyers as an introduction to social work practice and the principles of child care law and practice upon which it is based. The book also provides insight for lawyers into the standards to be expected of social workers, which is helpful in children law work. Eileen Munro writes from the perspective of a depth of academic knowledge and many years of experience. I like the clarity of her style, and the ease with which she shares information in a palatable way' - Association of Lawyers for Children

Child Protection is part of an exciting new series from SAGE Publications. Developed as accessible reference tools, SAGE Course Companions offer comprehensive introductions to core subjects, encouraging students to extend their understanding of key concepts, issues and debates. This companion offers readers an accessible overview of the core themes in child abuse and child protection, helping readers understand both the theory and practice involved in child protection, as well as enhancing their thinking skills in line with course requirements.

Designed to compliment existing textbooks for the course, the book provides:

- easy access to the key themes in child protection

- an expert's view on running themes in the course

- guidance on developing critical thinking

- helpful summaries of the approach taken by the main course textbooks

- guidance on essential study skills

- route-maps to aid the development of wider learning above and beyond the textbook.

The SAGE Course Companion to Child Protection is an essential tool that will help readers take their course understanding to new levels and ensure success in their undergraduate course.
