Violence, threats and intimidation in the lives of professionals whose work involves children

29 Feb 2004
Description

Violence, threats and intimidation confront many professionals working in the area of child protection. Freda Briggs, Donna Broadhurst and Russell Hawkins find that workers across a range of professions may be subjected to a variety of stressful and damaging behaviours that can impact on their long-term ability to protect children. The emotional and health effects can lead to physical and psychological illness and burn-out which, in turn, may lead to absence from work, transfer and even resignation.
