Editorial Reviews


"This type of survey and analysis is essential to developing more effective programs and policies for at-risk children and their families. It also is critical to providing guidance for child-protection agencies and their community partners, as well as policy-makers, social workers and advocates for a better, safer world for children. Child Protection will help spark national interest in the child protective services field." — Policy and Practice
