"This book is especially welcome because of the scholarship and thoughtfulness evident throughout." —Dr Peter Reder, Child Psychiatrist, London How do child protection professionals and courts make judgments on whether serious injuries to infants are due to abuse? If injuries are considered to be the result of abuse, in what circumstances can it be considered safe for the infant to return home? Child Protection Assessment Following Serious Injuries to Infants is concerned with helping child protection professionals and courts make the right decisions and avoid errors that can have disastrous consequences for children and families. Drawing upon the extensive clinical and research experience of the authors, this authoritative text: Reviews research on the causes of child abuse and problems in diagnosing abuse. Examines the views of parents who consider that they have been wrongly accused of child abuse. Draws specific attention to the need to assess potential for change in families and considers in detail how this can be achieved. Highlights skills issues that are necessary for undertaking appropriate assessments. Identifies key factors that are indicative of reunification in some cases, and factors that contraindicate reunification in others. With its evidence-based approach, this book will be a valuable resource for all child protection professionals. It will also be of use to health professionals, legal professionals, researchers, lecturers and students of social work.

This special issue was designed to explore the role of health care professionals in the assessment, treatment, and prevention of child maltreatment. The initial five articles were solicited to enhance our understanding of various forms of child maltreatment as well as approaches designed to effectively respond to this difficult problem. The final manuscripts in this issue represent a theoretical and empirical perspective on child maltreatment. Medical settings represent a fertile arena for prevention as well as intervention initiatives. Future research should further support clinical strategies via program evaluation and outcome studies, and be aimed at enhancing our knowledge of the field and developing more comprehensive models to guide our efforts. It is hoped that this issue will stimulate research in this area and provide additional support for clinical interventions in the field.
