    Abstract

    This PhD by publication consists of two single authored books, five single authored
    papers in refereed journals, five single authored papers and one joint authored paper
    in edited books and covers the period 1985-2000. Two central ongoing themes are
    identified in the work: (1) the analysis of changing policy and practice in relation to
    child abuse in the UK from the late 1960's onwards; and (2), the changing nature of
    social work, again mainly in the UK. The themes are overlapping and in relation to
    both a number of concepts and debates in social theory are drawn upon both to
    analyse the changes and to make a positive contribution to policy and practice,
    particularly in the area of child welfare social work.
