This new edition is essential reading for anyone concerned with improving child protection practice. Building on the strengths of the First Edition, it provides a deeper understanding of how practice judgments and decisions can be improved in child protection work.

Updates include:

  • An account of how intuition, emotion, and analytic thinking are combined in practice
  • An analysis of how the nature of the task determines what combination is needed
  • An updated chapter on how we can detect errors
  • New material on how organizations can promote good reasoning skills
  • A simpler way to understand risk assessment instruments

Illustrated with detailed case studies throughout, it will be invaluable reading for students, researchers, and practitioners in all areas of child protection, including social work, education, health, and policing.
