Protecting Children: A Social Model

Brigid Featherstone, Anna Gupta, Kate Morris, Sue White

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


This book provides an alternative approach to that which currently dominates child protection policy and practice. It argues that the harms children and their families experience are often subject to a highly individualised risk-focused gaze and for a social model that locates families within their economic and social contexts and places ethics and human rights centrally.
