The details of the history of child advocacy have been vividly described in an article by Takanishi (1978). In reviewing her work and that of others, four historical phases in child advocacy can be identified: 1. The first period was the evolution of the concept of childhood as a distinct and separate developmental stage. Aries (1962) has described how the concept of childhood as a period different from adulthood did not evolve philosophically until the sixteenth century. It was only after that time, through the influence of Rousseau and other philosophers, that childhood was seen, at first romantically, and later more realistically, as a special time for growth and learning, with unique styles and mechanisms. 2. It was not until the nineteenth century, however, with the rapid rise that a formal effort was made to of science and major socioeconomic changes identify and try to meet children's needs. A number of organizations specifi­ cally devoted to children arose and attempts to help children in ways consis­ tent with the developing knowledge became a major social issue. Initially, the interest was in children's health with infant mortality, child labor, and safety as paramount issues. Although socioeconomic factors initiated the change (children's labor was no longer economically necessary), a basic humanistic philosophy underlay this phase. Major dedication to alleviating the pain and injury done to children who were helpless to defend themselves and who were being deprived of opportunities for growth became the goal

Protecting children from abuse and neglect : foundations for a new national strategy( Book )

5 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Citing an estimated three million reports of suspected maltreatment, the U.S. Advisory Board on Child Abuse and Neglect declared a national emergency in the field of child protection in 1990. The Board's efforts culminated in the landmark 1993 report - Neighbors Helping Neighbors - a proposal for a new comprehensive, neighborhood-based, child-centered, family-focused child protection system, which represents a significant shift in focus from "When is it justifiable to intervene coercively?" to "What can be done to prevent harm to children?" The editors of this comprehensive volume are the principal architects of the proposed prevention strategy. They have brought together leading experts on child maltreatment to address its social, cultural, and economic precursors, as well as effective prevention and treatment. Focusing on ways to strengthen neighborhoods, build connections among and within families, and bolster economic and social supports, contributors offer practical advice for the development and implementation of programs and policies to prevent harm to children. To create a society-wide safety net in which child protection becomes a part of everyday life, their work proposes an agenda for critical research and identifies concrete strategies for all those who come in contact with children. Such work served as the empirical foundation for the U.S. Advisory Board's new national strategy. Offering a picture of child abuse and neglect unmatched in its authority and breadth, this book is ideal for social workers, all mental health professionals working with children, child rights advocates, child welfare administrators, and policy makers. It is also valuable as a primary text or secondary reading for courses dealing with strategies for preventing child abuse and neglect
