- In Canada, professionals such as doctors, teachers, and social workers must report child abuse and neglect to Child Protection Services. This is often a difficult decision - professionals may be uncertain if they should report their suspicions and worry about the relationship with the client or patient if they follow through. This work provides specific strategies regarding how to make the decision to report while maintaining the client-professional relationship. The text also provides information on the history of child abuse and neglect in Canada, types of maltreatment, factors that protect children or put them at risk of maltreatment, and online child abuse and neglect.
