Summary Based on a qualitative study of Irish child protection practices, this book takes a detailed look at what professionals involved in child protection do as they process cases. Examining both theoretical frameworks and practice, Helen Buckley sets out to clarify the factors that influence decision making in child protection work - factors not always visible in procedural guidelines. Illustrating the pathways that cases may follow with frameworks used by child care workers in practice, she explores the importance of the cultural, political or organisational context in which work is carried out.
