Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs (FaHCSIA) 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography p. 55-58Summary: Reducing all violence in our community is a priority. All forms of violence against women are unacceptable, in any community and in any culture. It is everyone's responsibility to reject and prevent violence. The National Plan targets two main types of violence: domestic and family violence and sexual assault. These crimes are gendered crimes that is they have an unequal impact on women. Whilst there are many forms of violent behaviour perpetrated against women, domestic violence and sexual assault are the most pervasive forms of violence experienced by women in Australia, and require an immediate and focused response.Availability: (1)

Professionals Protecting Children : Child Protection and Psychology Education in Australia /

by Crettenden, Angela | Australian Psychological Society | Zerk, Danielle | Farrall, Edwina | Arnold, Lynette.

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)

Protection to prevention : child welfare policies

by Carter, Jan | University of New South Wales. Social Welfare Research Centre.

Publisher: Kensington, N.S.W. Social Welfare Research Centre 1983Description: 76 p. PDF.Other title: SWRC Reports and proceedings no. 29.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: January 1983Summary: This study was undertaken to examine child welfare policies in terms of their relative emphases on protective or preventive measures, and it set out to determine whether, in general, protective policies enhance or reduce the impact of preventive policies or vice versa. There are great contradictions implicit in governments attempting simultaneously to pursue protective and preventive policies. Protection is used, in this report, to mean the rescue or supervision of a child from adverse family circumstances by compulsory government intervention, while prevention is used to refer to the summoning of an appropriate range of services on a non-compulsory basis, to reinforce and enhance the caring capacity of the family for the child.Availability: (1)

Report of inquiry into immigration detention procedures. /

by Flood, Philip.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Australia. Department of Immigration and Multicultural and Indigenous Affairs 2001Description: 104 p.Notes: February 2001Summary: This report was the result of an independent inquiry ordered by Minister Ruddock into procedures for identifying and dealing with instances or situations where there is suspicion of child abuse in detention centres. The report investigates the processes for identifying, dealing with, reporting on, and following up allegations, instances, or situations where there is reasonable suspicion of child abuse in immigration detention centers and the manner in which those processes were followed in cases during the previous year. It also examines, assesses, and makes findings on all relevant processes and procedures of Department of Immigration and Multicultural Affairs and Australasian Correctional Management, including incident reporting. In relation to cases currently under investigation by South Australian Family and Youth Services, the report attempts to determine whether all relevant information or documents were provided to the responsible authorities at the appropriate time and, in instances of failure to follow appropriate procedures, makes findings on the reasons. The report identifies problems in individual detention centers and makes specific recommendations for corrective actions. In general, the report concludes, there needs to be greater public appreciation for the work of detention center employees, and greater understanding of the values and concerns which underlie the policies being managed.

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)
