This is a study of the effects of racism on the protection and support of black children who have been sexually abused. The author explores the myths and realities surrounding the abuse of black children, and the actions of social workers and others who are responsible for their protection. Her purpose is to demonstrate how deeply racism is affecting the provision and care for the abused black child, the prevention of disclosure of abuse by such children, and what can be done to redress the balance. The book includes first-hand accounts supported by qualitative and quantitative research and references to literature in the field. It is aimed at those preparing for the Diploma in Social Work or NVQ in Care level 3, health visitors and Project 2000 nurses.
