Well-publicised cases of child abuse have brought heavy media criticism of the social work role in prevention and child protection. This book attempts to bring a sense of perspective to allay the anxieties and fears felt by many social workers. The authors resist the idea that child abuse is a special 'disease' and develop a broad based strategy encompassing both individual therapy and environmental approaches. '...Cooper and Ball's short introduction to child abuse in the Practical Social Work Series is a remarkable achievement in that it provides local authority social workers and general social work students with a concise overview of issues related to working in child abuse.' Issues in Social Work Education.

Introduction - Developments, Definitions and Reactions - Other Agencies and Child Abuse - Social Workers' Anxieties and Needs - Assessing Risk and Taking Risks - Social Workers as Investigators - Social Workers as Therapists - Strategies for Tomorrow - Appendix A: Glossary of Legal and Administrative Provisions - Appendix B: DHSS, Major Circulars and Guidelines - Bibliography - Index
