Child Abuse 3rd Edition

By Christina Lyon

This book is a practical explanation of the complex legal framework surrounding child abuse. The third edition of this standard British text sets out the procedures for using the range of civil and criminal proceedings available for protecting children and prosecuting their abusers. The new edition has been thoroughly revised and updated and reflects changes introduced by recent legislation such as Part IV of the Family Law Act 1996. Helpful diagrams set out the interrelated roles of the professionals and agencies, and practical guidance is given on inter-agency cooperation.
