The Cleveland child abuse crisis of 1987 has been much misunderstood, and its legacy has been a risk averse professional climate in which knowledge gained about proactive intervention has been lost, to the detriment of child victims. Re-issued with a new preface and concluding reflections, this book provides an informed understanding of Cleveland as a pivotal point for the policies and politics of child protection, and makes constructive suggestions for more effective interventions for children at risk.
