A Child's Journey Through Contemporary Issues in Child Protection

By Rhiannon Davies, Gary Norton

Contributions by: Paul Lopez

This new title provides clear, authoritative commentary on good practice, law, and current research for both lawyers and other professionals who are involved in modern day safeguarding practice. Highly topical issues covered include: the child protection process and the family justice system; neglect, domestic abuse; trafficking and modern day slavery; child sexual exploitation; forced marriage and honour-based violence; child radicalisation; Female Genital Mutilation (FGM); and more. These topics raise complex and contemporary issues for family justice and social work, thereby generating recent legislative change, and bringing a new range of conceptual and practical problems for lawyers, social workers and health care professionals alike. Each section begins with a clear narrative identifying the issues, followed by a comprehensive consideration of the applicable legal framework and an up-to-date review of the contemporary research that is available on each subject area. A full discussion of the child's journey through this is considered, alongside any implications that this raises for practice. [Subject: Family Law, Child's Law, Sex Trafficking, Exploitation]
