Reseña del editor:

Neglect is the most common form of child maltreatment in developed countries and it comes in many forms. From evaluating the effects of neglect on the child to looking at root causes, this wide-ranging book offers evidence-based, practical guidance to support all practitioners in their work with neglected children. In particular:

· It assesses a range of methods of intervention and how these best apply to the various needs of different families.

· It explores the tensions and dilemmas that practitioners can face when working with neglected children.

· It demonstrates ways that practitioners can work together to promote better outcomes for the child.

· It provides frameworks and prompts, such as engaging case studies and reflective questions that can assist practitioners in their work.

Written by a leading authority on child neglect, this book is essential for all students taking courses in child welfare and will also prove an invaluable handbook for practitioners working with families where there are signs of child neglect.
