This study moves beyond a focus on the initial stages of child protection work to examine what makes subsequent action effective. The authors observed 120 initial case conferences and followed the progress of 44 children over a two-year period. Drawing on a range of evidence, the developments and outcomes of cases are explored in the light of decisions witnessed at first hand. The research examines the strengths and limitations of child protection practice and investigates the impact of procedures.
