· Practical. Examines the issues grounded in reality, and therefore gives the reader confidence in practice, coupled with an understanding of the responsibilities of colleagues in other professions.
· Comprehensive. Covers a broad review of what constitutes child abuse and characteristics of the abused and the abusers; medical, social and legal management of the process of protection; the actions involved in intervention. and training and new directions for research and practice
· Authoritative. Contributors are senior professionals known nationally and internationally for their specific expertise in this area.
· Research based. All books should be, but amongst the professionals most closely involved in child protection, the heavy workload often means there is little time to catch up on and assimilate up-to-date research fully. This book offers a through guide to what research and policy initiatives can give to the practice of the reader.


"I have found this handbook thought-provoking and comprehensive, and commend it to all practitioners in the field"
