Item Type:Article
Additional Information:The article develops a theoretical argument drawing on findings from a three-year study of 319 child welfare and protection referrals in three social work teams. The findings contribute to high-profile international debates about the changing nature of social work and welfare regimes and the balance of family support and child protection services. It thus advances a new paradigm for theorizing welfare which moves beyond the traditional depiction of �clients' and professionals as being passive to focus on the capacities all human beings have to act in critical and knowledgeable ways.
