Students examine the context of safeguarding children and the political and social response to abuse and neglect. This includes a critical examination of outcomes for children in care, leaving care and adoption, the impact of parental problems such as substance misuse and mental health, and the inter-professional context of child protection. Skills for direct work with children and families, including risk assessment and risk management and family interventions, are also studied.
