Child Welfare Child abuse and child protection Book Review:

This collection focuses on child welfare in its specific sense: welfare and social interventions with children and young people undertaken by State bodies or NGO's. The term 'child welfare' is deployed differently in diverse international settings. In the United Kingdom child welfare tends to refer to individualised programmes for children who have experienced problems in their lives. In India, to take a contrasting example, it can also refer to major housing and nutrition programmes. This collection takes an inclusive approach to international perspectives.The collection is completed by a new general introduction by the editor, individual volume introductions, and a full index.Titles also available in this series include, Medical Sociology (November 2004, 4 Volumes, 495) and the forthcoming collection Health Care Systems (2005, 3 Volumes, c.395).

Symptoms of such abuse and its devastating effects on victims go undetected, victims do not receive appropriate therapeutic intervention, and transgressors do not come to the attention of the courts. The author of this book brings this neglected area `out of the shadows' with personal accounts of adult survivors, insights into why sibling abuse occurs, suggestions for prevention and implications for treatment.

Child abuse and neglect is recognized as one of the major social problems facing modern society today. An increase in the theory and research into causes and treatment has resulted in the growth of practical knowledge derived from the fields of psychiatry, psychology, education, sociology, social work, and related professions. Reflecting a multi-disciplinary approach, this study presents the latest findings from these fields by exploring the issue of child abuse and neglect from a broad theoretical perspective. Both micro and macro approaches are stressed in the work, with particular emphasis on social factors related to child abuse and neglect, characteristics of adults and families likely to abuse and neglect and emerging strategies of treatment including family therapy.

Abuse of Procedural Rights Comparative Standards of Procedural Book Review:

In a very meaningful way, the health of a judicial system may be judged by the care with which its procedural rights are observed. Now, in a book that takes stock of this important element as it is currently used or abused in a number of the world's legal systems, eighteen outstanding scholars approach the subject through an analysis of the following factors: the theoretical and moral implications of procedural abuses the subjects who commit them the typologies of abusive practices the consequences of abusive practices Several authors report on practices in their own countries, revealing distinct evidence of a significant degree of lowered procedural standards in the United States, several European countries, Australia, Japan, and Latin America. General and final reports provide a comparative framework for an analytical study that will repay the study of anyone concerned with the fairness of our legal institutions.

Psychodynamic Perspectives on Abuse Book Review:

Abuse is defined broadly and considered as a widespread phenomenon with a variety of manifestations and contexts. Its consequences, and the responses it may provoke, are discussed in detail with reference to three areas. In the personal context, the impact of abuse on an individual's development, emotional life and ability to participate in society is addressed. In the workplace, where the focus is upon working relationships and organizational goals, abuse may cause stress, undermine effectiveness and lead to legal redress: thus it involves a different set of problems and requires different treatment. In relation to society as a whole, the threat which abuse poses and the factors which determine policy are evaluated. Psychodynamic Perspectives on Abuse is unique in its range and focus, providing the cross-disciplinary approach to this problem which is essential for developing strategies to deal with it at all levels.

The Harassment and Abuse of Older People in the Private Rented Sector Book Review:

Help the Aged funded this major study because of concerns that older people living in private rented housing were vulnerable to abuse and harassment by landlords. Drawing upon detailed research with older people, professionals and landlords in six different localities, the report provides the first major study of this important issue. The report concludes with a series of recommendations to central and local government. These include the need for changes in such areas as the overall regulation of the sector, the rights of older tenants and in the housing benefit system. The recommendations also cover the need for better training for professionals about abuse and harassment, improved age related records and the need for improved funding for advice and advocacy services. This study will be essential reading for a wide range of practitioners and academics whose interests and responsibilities span older people and their reliance upon the housing and welfare systems.

Child Abuse Book Review:

Child abuse and neglect is as, at a minimum any recent act or failure to act on the part of a parent or caretaker which results in death, serious physical or emotional harm, sexual abuse or exploitation; or an act or failure to act which presents an imminent risk of serious harm. Four major types of maltreatment are usually included: neglect, physical abuse, sexual abuse, and emotional abuse. Although any of the forms of child maltreatment may be found separately, they often occur in combination. This book presents issues and research in this field.
