This article attempts to explore the tendency of child protection workers to concentrate upon mothers, and ignore or avoid fathers or male cohabitees. The article suggests that ignoring or avoiding men constitutes a serious problem in child protection work, and makes suggestions on how trainers and managers may prepare workers more effectively, enabling them to engage men who are significant in the lives of abused children. 49 references.
