Author: Marcus Erooga
Publisher: Jessica Kingsley Publishers
ISBN: 9781784503567
Release Date: 2018-01-18
Genre: Social Science

The high profile reporting of child sexual abuse carried out by Jimmy Savile over decades has had far reaching-consequences, raising public awareness and concern, yet we continue to uncover new cases of institutional abuse which have been taking place under the radar for years. This book distils the learning from 80+ public inquiries relating to Savile as well as related cases of institutional abuse and analyses the key findings. It examines what we now know about offending within organisations and institutions, and how organisational failures can enable abusers. Each chapter also outlines solutions, offering perspectives for individuals and organisations on what practical action they can take to minimise risk in the settings in which they work. The book includes chapters specifically dedicated to the NHS, sports organisations and schools, and is necessary reading for professionals with responsibility for safeguarding in any setting.

Prävention lässt sich am besten mit vorausschauender Problemvermeidung übersetzen. Seit der Ottawa-Charta der Weltgesundheitsorganisation gelten Prävention und Gesundheitsförderung als die geeignetsten Instrumente, dem Kostenanstieg im Gesundheitswesen durch Vermeidung des Sozialversicherungsfalls entgegenzuwirken; mit andern Worten: durch Vermeidung von Bedarf an Behandlung, Rehabilitation und Pflege. Die lange politische Missachtung des Präventionsansatzes und seine kaum mehr nennenswerte öffentliche Förderung haben zu einer völligen Unterentwicklung hierzulande beigetragen. Der 1. Nationale Präventionskongress will einen Neuanfang in Sachen Prävention und Gesundheitsförderung, und er will in diesem Zusammenhang eine zukünftig stärkere Zusammenarbeit zwischen Wissenschaft und Praxis anstoßen.
