Safeguarding young people : responding to young people 11 to 17 who are maltreated /

by Rees, Gwyther | The Children's Society | Gorin, Sarah | Jobe, Alison.

Publisher: London, U.K. The Children's Society 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : p. 165-171Summary: Young people aged 11 and above are just as likely to be on the child protection register as younger children. Research has highlighted the need for age-specific approaches to child maltreatment, and the importance of acknowledging the different maltreatment experiences and needs of young people. However in the UK this issue had so far received little attention. What previous research did exist seemed to suggest that older children were less likely to get a child protection response. We did not know what influenced practitioners when making decisions about referring young people and about what happened when referrals were made. We also knew very little about how young people accessed child protection services. This research project addressed these issues through exploring current attitudes, practice and policy in relation to the maltreatment of young people. The focus of the research was on initial access to services, including: ; a review of the international research literature to identify different approaches to defining maltreatment issues for young people and models of practice ; a study of policy and guidance, including the views of senior policy makers and managers ; a study of attitudes to, and individual definitions, of maltreatment amongst professionals working with young people ; a study of practice within children's services and referring agencies in relation to potential child protection cases involving young people.Availability: (1)

Publisher: Underdale, S.A. University of South Australia. Australian Centre for Child Protection 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography: p. 63-64Summary: Child abuse and neglect, and their consequences for children, their families and carers, are issues which regularly confront psychologists in their daily work. Given the magnitude of these problems in our community, the Australian Psychological Society (APS) believes it is vital to ensure that psychologists are well equipped with the knowledge and skills to protect and nurture vulnerable children and their families. The Australian Centre for Child Protection in collaboration with the Australian Psychological Society sent a purpose developed curriculum mapping survey to 37 universities that offered Australian Psychology Accreditation Council (APAC) accredited programs in 2008. Survey responses provided information about undergraduate, fourth year and postgraduate psychology programs across most States and Territories of Australia. Results of the study showed that students in most accredited psychology programs were exposed to some child protection related content as part of their undergraduate, fourth year, or postgraduate education.Availability: (1)
