HOPE, Jackie  y  VAN WYK, Carlien. Intervention strategies used by social workers in emergency child protection . Social work (Stellenbosch. Online) [online]. 2018, vol.54, n.4, pp.421-437. ISSN 2312-7198.

This research provides insight into the current intervention strategies used by social workers in emergency child protection, whereby children are removed from their caregivers as a result of abuse and are placed at child and youth care centres. The research findings suggested that because of the lack of a practice model to guide professionals, as well as the significant challenges experienced by such professionals (high caseloads, staff turnover, lack of resources), the current intervention strategies in child protection are rushed, bureaucratic (paperwork focused) and emotionally disconnected from the child and family.
