Clinical psychology and child protection

2000, O'Brien, Elaine, Carey, Sean, Carr, Alan

In this 1998 postal survey of 140 clinical psychologists working in eight Health Boards and Voluntary agencies in the Republic of Ireland, it was found that clinical psychologists from child mental health, adult mental health and services for people with physical and intellectual disabilities were involved in child abuse and protection work. Clinical psychologists' child protection work spanned a number of domains including validation, general assessment, risk assessment, treatment of victims and offenders, consultation with other disciplines, administration and report writing, prevention, research and providing staff support.
