Featherstone, Brid, Morris, Kate and White, Sue (2014) A Marriage Made in Hell: Early Intervention Meets Child Protection. British Journal of Social Work, 44 (7). pp. 1735-1749. ISSN 0045-3102Metadata only available from this repository.
In this article, we will argue for the moral legitimacy of support and its difference from intervention and the need to engage with and develop a family support project for the twenty-first century. We call for a debate on the current settlement between the state and family life and for a recognition that a perfect storm has ensued from the unholy alliance of early intervention and child protection. We will argue for a project that celebrates families' strengths as well as their vulnerabilities in the context of considerable adversities and (re) locates workers as agents of hope and support. We draw from a diverse set of literatures and disciplines to locate our arguments within a broader project occasioned by the economic crisis and questioning of the verities of neo-liberalism.
