|Title:||Child abuse, rehabilitation and poverty: a quintet of problems||Authors:||Carr, Alan||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/5456||Date:||1995||Online since:||2014-03-12T10:01:23Z||Abstract:||Available empirical evidence shows that rehabilitation programmes for families at risk for child abuse do not prevent further abuse in the majority of cases. In this paper five problems that may account for this are discussed. These are the problems of denial, co-operation, conformity, role confusion and countertransference. It is argued that this quintet of problems is partially rooted in the way in which risk and rehabilitation have been socially constructed within the dominant discourse concerning child protection. Finally, the way in which poverty potentiates the impact of these problems is explored.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Human Systems||Journal:||Human Systems: The Journal of Systemic Consultation and Management||Volume:||5||Start page:||283||End page:||292||Keywords:||Denial; Co-operation; Conformity; Role confusion; Countertransference; Child protection; Sexual abuse||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
