Combatting Child Abuse: International Perspectives and Trends

By Neil Gilbert | Go to book overview
der this classification the countries are grouped into three categories as follows:
1. Child protection
United States
Canada
England
2. Family service -- mandatory reporting
Denmark
Sweden
Finland
3. Family service -- nonmandatory reporting
Belgium
Netherlands
Germany

In analyzing how their systems operate, the studies of these countries allow us to compare several approaches to reporting and dispensation of child abuse cases and to distinguish differences as well as common problems and policy responses currently emerging in this area. The purpose of this book is to help researchers and decision makers deepen their understanding of the social policies and institutional arrangements that frame societal responses to problems of child abuse in different countries -- so that we might benefit from each other's experiences.
