Helping Abused Children and their Families is a timely guide to the main challenges faced by social workers working in the context of child abuse and child protection. Written accessibly, the book outlines the knowledge and skills needed for effective practice. By drawing upon current international research, Chris Trotter shows that rates of re-abuse and client and worker satisfaction can be improved with certain approaches to intervention.

About the Author:

Dr Trotter worked for almost 20 years as a social worker and a regional manager in child protection and corrections prior to his appointment to Monash University in 1991.

Review:

`I think this has the potential to be a very good resource for social work students on qualifying and post-qualifying courses: there aren′t enough books on how to do the job at this level′ - Chris Beckett, Division of Social Work, Anglia Polytechnic University

`This book moves beyond investigation and risk assessment to decision making about the most effective ways of working with a family. Trotter provides a strong case for why practitioners should make these decisions evidence based. Only with such an approach is it going to be possible to increase the confidence of those working in Child Protection′ - Professor Margaret Lynch Editor, Child Abuse Review 1992 -2003

`This book gives us fresh insights into the complex task of child protection and must be essential reading for all those engaged in this demanding work. Both practitioners and policy makers will find much to stimulate them here′ - Robbie Gilligan, Professor of Social Work and Social Policy and Associate Director of the Children′s Research Centre at Trinity College Dublin
