Who is failing abused and neglected children?
UNSPECIFIED (2001) Who is failing abused and neglected children? ARCHIVES OF DISEASE IN CHILDHOOD, 85 (4). pp. 300-301. ISSN 0003-9888Full text not available from this repository.
This is a response to an article by Nigel Speight and Jane Wynne, 'Is the Children Act failing severely abused and neglected children?', published in this journal in March 2000.(1) Overall, we consider the article to be polemical and inadequately argued. Many of the points made are unsubstantiated and there are errors of fact. Where does evidence based practice go if senior practitioners prefer anecdotes and personal belief to research findings?
Restrictions on space preclude an exhaustive reply to all the points Speight and Wynne raise, so we have confined ourselves to addressing those considered most significant.
