"This excellent book helps explain why. Its chapters cover, for example, the move to safeguarding children, child poverty, parenting support, youth justice, looked after children, and refugees and asylum seeking children." (Professional Social Work, 1 September 2011)
From the Back Cover
Critical Perspectives on Safeguarding Children provides a multi–disciplinary analysis of current approaches to safeguarding children in the UK. It addresses the strengths, weaknesses and complexities inherent in the Government s objective of promoting opportunities for children through the Every Child Matters (ECM) framework. This book identifies key tensions and dilemmas in areas of policy and practice, and a number of significant questions are raised which, it is argued, need to be addressed if the aspirations of the ECM agenda are to be fully realised.
A critical text that takes the readership beyond the how to of policy and practice, Critical Perspectives on Safeguarding Children encourages an engagement with Government strategies and the ideas and discourses which frame them. Drawing contributors from the disciplines of Criminology, Education, Geography, Health, Philosophy, Social Policy and Social Work, this book provides an up–to–date overview of policy and practice that encourages students to think broadly, across traditional subject boundaries with regard to the safeguarding agenda.See all Product description
