Working With Physical Abuse and Neglect

Working With Physical Abuse and Neglect

(p.293) 13 Working With Physical Abuse and Neglect
Building Strengths and Skills




Oxford University Press

This chapter continues to explore the application of the strengths- and skills-building model to work with parents in the child welfare system. It focuses on physical abuse and neglect. No matter the role of the Child Protective Services worker — investigator, ongoing worker, or foster care worker — it is essential that a collaborative relationship is set up with the client in which concern, empathy, respect, and acceptance of the individual are conveyed. Three case examples are described to illustrate techniques at the various stages of the strengths- and skills-building helping process.

Keywords:   child welfare, child maltreatment, collaboration, strengths, Child Protective Services, empathy, respect
