MEDIA REVIEWS
A distinguishing feature of the book is its strong practice and training orientation. The majority of chapters contain experiential exercises which can be used by teams or incorporated into training courses, many of which are focused on multi-disciplinary working... Practitioners and trainers will find much in this collection which is of value. -- British Journal of Social Work
Will delight trainers. They could use the text as a pattern to mount immediate courses with stimulating exercises. -- Community Care
Each chapter is fully referenced, and some include case studies and exercises. I found Good Practice in Child Protection not only interesting but educational. It was harrowing to read the case studies and descriptions, and this shows the vital need of good training, supervision and support for workers in this field or for those who come into situations in which a child may be being abused in any way. -- Nursing Standard
This text would be very useful for any doctor involved in the care of children. -- Australian Family Physician
