The Cleveland child abuse crisis of 1987 has been much misunderstood, and its legacy has been a risk averse professional climate which has allowed subsequent child abuse tragedies to occur. Re-issued with a new preface and concluding reflections, this book provides an informed understanding of the Cleveland cases, and makes constructive suggestions for more effective interventions for children at risk.
