This content is unique to LexisNexis


1st Edition, December 2017

This new title provides clear, authoritative commentary on good practice, law and current research for both lawyers and other professionals who are involved in modern day safeguarding practice. Highly topical issues covered include:

The Child Protection Process and the Family Justice System
Fact Finding
Domestic Abuse
Trafficking and Modern Day Slavery
Child Sexual Exploitation
Forced Marriage and Honour-Based Violence
Child Radicalisation
Female Genital Mutilation (FGM)
Voice of the Child and the Child's Journey Through the Family Justice System
These topics raise complex and contemporary issues for family justice and social work, thereby generating recent legislative change, and bringing a new range of conceptual and practical problems for lawyers, social workers and health care professionals alike.

Each section begins with a clear narrative identifying the issues, followed by a comprehensive consideration of the applicable legal framework and an up-to-date review of the contemporary research that is available on each subject area, before a full discussion of the child’s journey through this is considered, alongside any implications that this raises for practice.
