Book Description :

This book challenges the ideologies and policies that presently shape child welfare services. It argues that caring for children is work of the highest priority. Neglect, the authors argue, should no longer be a reason for investigating and apprehending children, and the entire resources of child wefare agencies should be devoted to assisting and supporting parents. Further, they propose that child abuse be reclassified as a criminal offence and handled by the criminal justice system. Finally the book suggests that community ownership of child welfare is important in order to provide an opportunity for social learning.

Book Description :

The problem of child abuse has become increasingly evident in North America and Western Europe. Many countries are now struggling with issues involving the definition of child maltreatment, reporting requirements, processes for responding to reports, substantiation rates, and services to abused children and their families. This book illustrates alternative approaches to dealing with these problems by examining and comparing the designs of child abuse systems in nine countries: the US, English, Canada, Netherlands, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Belgium, and Sweden.

Book Description :

Published in 1999, Community Approaches to Child Welfare is written by both practitioners and academics to explore ways in which community-based, preventative approaches to child welfare can be used to support families experiencing behavioural problems with children or undergoing difficulties in raising them. Specific practice examples developed in Britain, Canada and Sweden provide an international dimension to this book. Comparing and contrasting developments within these countries reveal that there are both similarities in the methods adopted and difference in the ways in which these are applied. Common themes which appear across the stories that are presented include: the importance of ensuring cultural specificity to respond to identity issues and local traditions; the need to adhere to legislation that is country specific; the importance of dealing with some child welfare issues on an international basis, e.g. child abductions; and the importance of giving children the space within which to articulate their own 'voice.' Additionally, the book reveals how working with families from a community perspective which is centered in acknowledging children’s rights and parental rights may challenge professionals in ways that they find uncomfortable. Nevertheless, the book concludes that practice can more effectively serve children’s interests if parents and workers work in partnership with each other.

Book Description :

Child neglect has been characterized over the past century as a problem of deficient care of children by mothers. A complex and punitive child welfare system has emerged, based on a view that the children of these mothers require legally sanctioned rescue by those better suited to care for them. Karen Swift challenges both the accepted view of child neglect and the present official response to it. Beginning from a critical theoretical perspective, she argues that our usual perceptions of neglect hide and distort important social realities. This distorted perception only serves to reproduce the conditions of poverty, marginalization, and violence in which these families live. The current child welfare system, far from rescuing neglected children, helps instead to ensure the continuation of their problems, and the outcome is especially dramatic and damaging in Aboriginal communities. Swift explores the historical, organizational, and professional dimensions within which child neglect becomes a visible social reality. Also examined are relations of class, race, and gender embedded in our usual understanding of child neglect. The discussion shows how these relations are continually reproduced through ordinary, everyday work practices of social workers and others who deal with mothers accused of child neglect. The 'good parent' model, through which help and authority are apparently merged, continually indicates that the mothers are unworthy of help. Their own experience disappears as they are faced with procedures designed to examine their present suitability for the job of parenting. The same procedures produce a situation in which children are being helped through the exertion of state authority over their parents - but most of the help provided children is theoretical, and some of it is quite damaging. Swift also looks at both current and alternative notions of helping families. Finally, she argues that each of us can help to transform oppressive social realities.

Book Description :

Women are our main health care providers, both in the health care systems and in their families. They are also the most frequent users of the health care system. However, most health research is geared to the male as the standard patient. There has been a need for women to become more vocal about health care, and to be better informed. Consumers of health care are now required to be advocates for themselves and their families. Women's Voices in Health Promotion is a path-breaking book. It empowers the reader by providing her with a comprehensive collection of feminist perspectives on women's health promotion. Readers will find in this volume a clear exposition of the state of feminist theory of women's health promotion, a guide to current knowlege, a participatory action research framework and examples of its local implementation for extending our understanding and capabilities.
