Abstract

This book challenges contemporary directions in policy and practice with child protection. It argues for the importance of understanding the role of poverty and deprivation in the difficulties faced by families under neo-liberalism and challenges a child protection project that is focused on rescuing children and demonising their parents. It seeks to engage in dialogue and make common cause with those who are developing a relational approach to welfare and safeguarding and contribute to a growing literature that calls for a alternate paradigm to that which is currently hegemonic.
