This book provides a detailed examination of child protection procedures and practice in Hong Kong. It is the first exclusive study of the subject in the context of a Chinese society. Using theoretical chapters and case studies which are subjected to critical analyses, the reader is guided on a journey along the path which children, parents and professionals follow. In addition to examining the different forms of abuse: physical, sexual, psychological and gross neglect, there are chapters devoted to historical background, to prevention, and to a vision for future development. The book is aimed at a multidisciplinary readership and the authors reflect this diversity. Most have a close connection with the organization, AgainstChild Abuse
