This book brings together leading scholars of child protection to present an in-depth analysis of the current state of policy and practice as well as assessments of the effects of inequality on children and families. The book delivers a critique of contemporary policy directions, but it also offers more hopeful practice possibilities drawn from developments around the social model in mental health and disability studies. The authors ultimately argue for a shift in child protection policy from an individual risk model to a social model.
