We have developed 3 family case studies to illustrate many of the issues that practitioners are likely to encounter when investigating childhood neglect. The 3 families are:

  • Evans
  • Henderson/Taylor/Miller
  • Akhtar

The case studies provide first person narratives giving the perspective of each adult and child.

Accompanying videos to these case studies are available on our YouTube channel.

The guidance and exercise documents, presentations and notes and handouts that complement these family case studies are also available.
