The Prevention of Child Abuse.
Wattam, Corinne
Children & Society, v13 n4 p317-29 Sep 1999
Reviews three current approaches to preventing child abuse in Great Britain: clinical health-led risk-assessment model, broader social-reform strategies, and criminal justice youth victimization models. Explores sources of contradiction through definitions of child abuse underpinning different strategies. Proposes change in language of child protection away from child abuse toward specific avoidable harm. (Author/KB)
