Cases of child neglect raise assessment dilemmas that are often more complex than cases of physical or sexual abuse. This important book highlights the personal, professional and organizational factors that influence the identification and assessment of child neglect and explores ways in which current practice may be improved. Drawing on new and existing research evidence, it provides a thorough and insightful overview of this taxing area of professional practice, emphasizing throughout the importance of effective multidisciplinary working.
