Toward a Child-Centered, Neighborhood-Based Child Protection System: A Report of the Consortium on Children, Families, and the Law

Melton, Gary B. (Editor); Thompson, Ross A. (Editor); Small, Mark A. (Editor). Greenwood Publishing Group, Westport, CT. Praeger Publishers. 317 pp. $65.00. Hardcover.

Scholars affiliated with universities and professional associations nationwide contribute to this collection of research. Their reports and studies examine the current child protection system and compare it to a neighborhood-based approach to child protection. Discussions address the challenges of moving toward such a system within the current legal, political, and cross-cultural contexts of child protection. They also cite examples of promising applications of a community-based approach and enumerate the legal and practical structural steps needed in creating caring communities that effectively address child abuse and neglect.
