Pardeck, J: Children's Rights
Policy and Practice, Second Edition
Children have a basic human right to be free of abuse and maltreatment. The late Dr. John Pardeck's Children's Rights: Policy and Practice comprehensively explores the legal, psychological, sociological, policy, and child advocacy issues dealing with children's rights. This new edition of The Haworth Social Work Practice Press classic discusses the practical and ethical issues inherent in balancing a child's right to self-determination against the same child's need to be protected. This valuable resource includes over 100 pages of new and updated material, extensive references and notes, a helpful list of Web sites, and a comprehensive glossary of influential legal rulings focusing on children's rights.
