Effective Child Protection is written for anyone involved in child protection and child welfare work that is interested in how to make better child care decisions. Eileen Munro provides a clear framework on decision-making, risk assessment and reasoning in addition to helping explain and justify decisions and judgements and the sources of any disagreements.
This book challenges the traditional conflict between analytic and intuitive methods of reasoning and proposes a model in which each has strengths at different points in the process. Using detailed case studies and graphics to provide memorable illustrations of key points, this is an invaluable practical and theoretical addition to the complexities of making predictions about children's best interests. And is written for and social workers, nurses, police officers or health workers and all those taking or teaching qualifying and post-qualifying courses in child protection and child care.
