Just coming to the end of the second year of the Social Work Degree, having seen the 2nd edition I bought my own copy of the 3rd edition. The book is very informative and written in a clear style.
It covers a wide area in regard to child protection with 29 chapters broken down into 3 sections; Understanding child abuse, Managing the process of safeguarding children and Intervention in safeguarding children.
Very good source of comprehensive information for students and it will be very useful when I go into practice in further helping my understanding, the sort of book you can dip into to find the information you need easily. Just wish I had got my hands on a copy at the start of the course.
