Rethinking Children, Violence and Safeguarding explores the victimization of children as well as children who use violence towards others and presents an overview of key developments in research, policy and practice within the context of the recent major shift in thinking from ‘child protection’ towards ‘safeguarding’ and evidencing better outcomes. The gaps between rhetoric and practice are considered and Lorraine Radford argues that the way we ‘think’ about children and violence has had a profound impact on actions against the abuse of children and children who commit violence.

Examples of research, reflections on research and key points and guidance on further reading make this a really accessible text.

Rethinking Children, Violence and Safeguarding is essential reading for those studying childhood and undergraduate and graduate level, and will be of great interest to those working with children in any field.
