Child protection and family support is a major social issue and there is a continuing debate about how policies and practices in relation to child protection integrate with those in family support and child welfare more generally. This study analyzes the nature of this issue.
""The assorted articles offer a varied and interesting menu of perspectives on the tensions between protection (an authoritarian stance) and support (a cooperative stance). The reader is treated to the United Kingdom policies on these two approaches, the philsophy behind them, research on their effectiveness, program examples, legal issues, and practice concepts. . ."Child Protection and Family Support is a collection of works that merits reading. It is well-written and covers a wide range of topics, all of which are relevant to American child welfare practice. Reading the book is oddly comforting; the problems with which we grapple in the U.S. are not unique. We are not alone." --Dorinda N. Noble, LSU School of Social Work for "Child & Adolescent Social Work Journal, April 2000."
