Abstract

Child abuse, by its nature, is not the province of any one group of workers. The public alarms about children have reverberated, to a greater or lesser degree, through all the workers and agencies who have contact with children; they have been forced to communicate and collaborate and official enquiries have regularly complained where they have apparently failed to do so. It is probably true to say that the central theme of official reports has been liaison between workers rather than the efficacy of particular methods of treatment of child abuse. If only workers were quicker to share concerns, it would seem then perhaps most children would not have died.
