This book has sought to account for the nature of child protection practice and social work by grounding it in an analysis of the everyday practices and movements of child protection. It has tried to understand why it is that abused children are not protected when professionals are face to face with them. The aim has been to provide systematic knowledge about how practitioners need to perform actual child protection practices while face to face with children and parents in their homes and other places. This book has set out the form that child protection takes from the moment practitioners leave their desks and offices, and the skills, knowledge and organizational support, as well as the courage and resilience that are needed if practitioners are to carry through on child protection in the intimate way that is required.
