This authoritative series draws from original research and current policy debates to help social work managers, policy makers and researchers to understand and improve the outcomes of services for children and young people in need. Taking an evidence-based approach, these books include children's experiences and analysis of costs and effectiveness in their assessment of interventions, and provide guidance on how to develop more effective policy, practice, and training. "Child Protection and Child Welfare" draws on the knowledge of child protection experts and social care professionals in a broad range of countries in order to provide a comparative international overview of child protection strategy and policy. It uses case studies to highlight the differences and similarities in approaches to child welfare and protection within selected geographical areas, and offers guidance for those working with children from immigrant communities living in these areas. Research findings offer practitioners and policy makers useful information for developing their practice and to enable them to respond to culturally specific needs arising in the children they are working to protect. This important book will be essential reading for social workers, policy makers, child protection service workers, commissioners and managers across child and family welfare services, as well as researchers and academics in the field.
