The book includes brief, helpful summaries of different interventions.. The small size of the book is encouraging for busy practitioners and it lends itself to 'dipping in and out' rather than reading cover to cover. The authors use extensive sources, which are clearly referenced and cited throughout. The text is consistently well-presented and adequately supported by relevant tables and figures... The 'case studies' are realistic and helpfully illustrate the main content of each chapter, while the 'activities' boxes are thought-provoking and encourage reflection on practice. Also helpful are the 'key messages' at the end of each chapter, which succinctly summarise the main points. This book does broadly achieve its aims to challenge practitioners to reflect on practice and values. -- Jess McCormack, Social Worker * Practice: Social Work in Action * [T]his book is a most welcome and timely addition to the literature on child neglect. The authors write with assurance and understanding, recognizing how emotionally draining and professionally demanding the work can be; they also offer a challenge to current thinking and practice. This is a must-read book for all those whose work brings them in contact with neglected children, for their managers and those responsible for their training and education. -- From the Foreword by Enid Hendry, Head of Strategy and Development (Looked after Children), NSPCC, UK an excellent book. Indeed the comments made above essentially highlight the importance and complexity of the subject, and the authors rightly identify several areas as meriting more research. Jessica Kingsley are producing quite a flood of interesting texts at present, and they are to commended for publishing this book. -- Children Webmag This is a well rounded book, supported by many up to date research studies. -- Play for Life This book is strongly recommended for practitioners and as a resource for researchers. -- Child and Adolescent Mental Health One of the biggest strengths to this text is how it sparks the imagination, motivating creativity of response to situations of neglect... I personally was left with the hope-filled message that "it is possible to prevent child neglect" (p.160)and the confidence to believe the necessary systemic change might actually be achievable. -- Practice: Social Work in Action
