Review

'I commend this book ... I want it to be read and used day by day.' - Lord Laming, Chair of the Victoria Climbie Inquiry

'This book is particularly suitable for professionals unfamiliar with child protection procedures.' – Community Care

'The Child in Mind should be in everyone's back pocket, it defines all types of abuse very clearly and is an advocate for whistle blowing.' – Anne Bannister, Univeristy of Sheffield

'This is a concise and informative textbook for health practitioners whose work brings them into contact with children or families ... it provides a wealth of information.' – Nursing Standard

By A Customer on June 10 2004
Format: Hardcover
This small child protection guide book answers a lingering call. In such a chaotic child protection service with its disjointed organisation and disparate proffesionals this guide provides much needed clarity. It's beauty lies in its brevity. For proffesionals uncertain of procedures or signs of abuse this guide is clear, erudite, accessible and comprehensive. Written by two practising professionals it has the added benefit of experience. For any health service workers this is a reference book that every person must have. And in wider society, anyone who cares for the well-being of children should read this book. It unravels some difficult signs of abuse and provides a clear course of action for any coming across an abused child. A much needed, welcomed and hopefully widely read book. Magisterial performance.
