Description - Child Welfare Services by Malcolm Hill
This review of child care policy and practice presents evaluations and critiques of legislation and policies, and describes innovative services for children and young people who are deemed to be in need of protection, care or control as a result of abandonment, neglect, or ill-treatment. There is also an examination of changes in adoption law, where such issues as placement policies in relation to children from ethnic minorities, intercountry adoption and the trend towards greater openness have become prominent issues.
