For several decades, social work and child protection systems have been subject to accelerating cycles of crisis and reform, with each crisis involving intense media and political scrutiny. In understanding the nature and causes of this cycle, little attention has been paid to the importance of collective emotions. Using a range of cases from the UK, and also considering cases from the Netherlands, the US and New Zealand, this book introduces the concept of emotional politics. It shows how collective emotions, such as anger, shame, fear and disgust, are central to constructions of risk and blame, and are generated and reflected by official documents, politicians and the media. The book considers strategies for challenging these emotional politics, including identifying models for a more politically engaged stance for the social work profession.

Review:

"This brilliant book takes our understanding of the emotional dynamics of social work, child protection, politics, power and everyday life to an entirely new level. Intellectually rich yet always relevant to practice, it shows how under recognised emotions like disgust and visceral notions of respectability not only create definitions of child abuse, but also what it means to be a good citizen and parent." --Professor Harry Ferguson, University of Nottingham

"This thought provoking and erudite book analyses the role of emotion and moral judgement in public and political responses to childhood and children at risk. It addresses the role of disgust and shame and thus animates the predictable responses to child deaths. The book concludes with a powerful argument for an emotional politics of child protection." --Sue White, University of Birmingham

About the Author:

Dr Joanne Warner is a senior lecturer in social work at the University of Kent. She is a registered social worker, beginning her career in community development work and generic practice before becoming an academic.
