This book follows on from Alison Cleland’s ground-breaking first edition. It has been thoroughly revised and re-written by its expert authors to reflect huge changes in legislation, development of policy and practice and child abuse offences in the last decade.
This is the only book available that brings together policy, practice and law of child protection in Scotland.
It is written and set out in a very practical and accessible style.
