BRAND NEW, Strengthening Child Protection: Sharing Information in Multi-Agency Settings, Kellie Thompson, Following high-profile Serious Case Reviews into the tragic deaths of children, including Victoria Climbie, Peter Connelly and Daniel Pelka, information sharing has now become a moral and political imperative for safeguarding the welfare of children. Getting information sharing right is difficult. What prompts professionals to do it at all? For the first time in child welfare literature, this accessible book examines information sharing in terms of professional needs and information related behaviours, as well as professional relationships with information and the complexities of building a full picture of a child's life. End of chapter questions prompt reflection and ensure direct practice relevance. This is essential reading for academics and policy makers, students on post-qualifying child protection courses, social workers, managers and all other professionals tasked with safeguarding children.

Item Description: Taylor & Francis Ltd. Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Working Together in Children's Services, Janet Kay, Damien Fitzgerald, The importance of interagency cooperation within children's services has been highlighted within recent government strategy, including the Every Child Matters agenda, the development of Children's Centres and the expansion of Extended Schools. Following tragic cases such as Victoria Climbie, the need for effective multi-disciplinary teamwork and interagency co-operation across all education and care settings remains as pressing as ever. Working Together in Children's Services addresses a range of theoretical perspectives and contexts to stimulate students and practitioners critical thinking about the issues of multi-agency working. The book provides the reader with a critical framework for understanding both new and future developments and explores key issues like: * The notion of "working together" and what it means in practice * The benefits and barriers of multi-agency work * Current policy and requirements for successful interdisciplinary working * Essential skills for inter-professional teamwork. As modules on multi-professional working become increasingly common, the book will provide core reading for all students of Early Childhood Studies, Initial Teacher Education and Foundation Degrees in the Early Years. By showing how to develop successful multi-agency partnerships, it is also highly relevant for teachers and practitioners working across children's services. Bookseller Inventory # B9781843124672

Item Description: Policy Press. Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Scandal, Social Policy and Social Welfare (2nd Revised edition), Mark Drakeford, Ian Butler, Scandals do not just happen. They are made. They are constructed out of such everyday tragedies as the small carelessnesses and institutional brutality of the long-stay hospital, the abuse of children or the violent deaths of innocent bystanders. This book, by examining the landmark scandals of the post-war period, including more recent ones such as the Victoria Climbie Inquiry, reveals how scandals are generated, to what purposes they are used and whose interests they are made to serve. In particular, it examines the role of the public inquiry, an increasingly familiar policy device, in the process whereby the 'story' of a particular scandal is told and its meaning fixed. Using transcripts, press coverage, materials from the Public Record Office and other contemporary sources each of the scandals described in the book is located in its own historical and policy context in order to explore the complex cause and effect relationship between public policy and scandal.

Item Description: Open University Press. Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Transforming Children's Services: Social Work, Neoliberalism and the Modern World, Paul Michael Garrett, "This is a forensic dissection of New Labour's approach to transforming children's services. Garrett brings together politics, policy and plans in a resolutely critical engagement with the futures currently being made both for social workers and for the families and children who may need those services." John Clarke, Professor of Social Policy, The Open University "Paul Michael Garrett writes with verve, commitment and clarity. His new book on transforming Children's Services will make a significant and lasting impression on the social work literature." Stephen Webb, Director of Institute of the Advanced Study for Humanity (IASH) University of Newcastle, Australia "This is an excellent book and one of the best I have read for some time. It is a must have for all social work and social policy students and practitioners. Policy makers and managers should also read and digest this, even though they will probably find large parts an uncomfortable read." Steve Rogowski, Professional Social Work (Dec, 2009) "Paul Michael Garrett's designedly critical analysis is timely, offering a fast-paced, hard-hitting, thought-provoking critique .this book is sure to satisfy those looking for less of 'surface' and more 'depth' explorations . .I am sure that 'Transforming' Children's Services? will become essential reading for social work and social policy students throughout the UK and, indeed, internationally given that Canada, America, Australia and New Zealand share in cognate systems of child welfare and protection." Karen Broadhurst, Critical Social Policy (forthcoming, 2010) This book provides an accessible overview of the 'transformation' of Children's Services in England. In doing this, it draws on social theory, critical social policy and takes account of developments in other countries. Paul Michael Garrett argues that the many changes which have taken place within, and beyond, Children's Services are related to the politics of Neoliberalism which, it is maintained, lie at the core of the Change for Children programme. Readers will find detailed discussion on: The Laming Report which examined the death of Victoria Climbie The case of 'Baby P' Social work's 'electronic turn' and the use of ICTs in Children's Services Controversial plans to introduce Contactpoint (a database on all children) More pervasive patterns of surveillance How 'ASBO politics' has influenced the 'transformation' agenda So-called 'Problem Families' and the measures put in place to respond to such families Controversial plans to set up 'Social Work Practices' for children in public careTransforming Children's Services will be a vital text for social work and social policy students. Furthermore, the book directly addresses a range of issues of direct concern to practitioners. The book will also find an audience amongst academics, policy makers and all those who are interested in critical reflection and in applying theoretical insights to practice issues. After each chapter a 'Reflection and Talk' box is included to prompt further discussion on the key themes examined. Bookseller Inventory # B9780335234257

Readers will find detailed discussion on: The Laming Report which examined the death of Victoria Climbie The case of Baby P Social work s electronic turn and the use of ICTs in Children s Services Controversial plans to introduce Contactpoint (a database on all children) More pervasive patterns of surveillance How ASBO politics has influenced the transformation agenda So-called Problem Families and the measures put in place to respond to such families Controversial plans to set up Social Work Practices for children in public careTransforming Children s Services will be a vital text for social work and social policy students. Furthermore, the book directly addresses a range of issues of direct concern to practitioners. The book will also find an audience amongst academics, policy makers and all those who are interested in critical reflection and in applying theoretical insights to practice issues. After each chapter a Reflection and Talk box is included to prompt further discussion on the key themes examined. Bookseller Inventory # AA39780335234257

Item Description: Policy Press, United Kingdom, 2005. Book. Book Condition: New. New edition. 230 x 154 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Scandals do not just happen. They are made. They are constructed out of such everyday tragedies as the small carelessnesses and institutional brutality of the long-stay hospital, the abuse of children or the violent deaths of innocent bystanders. This book, by examining the landmark scandals of the post-war period, including more recent ones such as the Victoria Climbie Inquiry, reveals how scandals are generated, to what purposes they are used and whose interests they are made to serve. In particular, it examines the role of the public inquiry, an increasingly familiar policy device, in the process whereby the story of a particular scandal is told and its meaning fixed. Using transcripts, press coverage, materials from the Public Record Office and other contemporary sources each of the scandals described in the book is located in its own historical and policy context in order to explore the complex cause and effect relationship between public policy and scandal.

BRAND NEW, Multi-Agency Safeguarding in a Public Protection World: A Handbook for Protecting Children and Vulnerable Adults: 2015, Russell Wate, Nigel Boulton, Any practitioner who begins work in the difficult and unique professional arena of public protection feels that they are entering a different world, made up of its own unique processes and guidelines and which, on many occasions, appears to have a language all of its own.

It aims to translate the processes, guidelines and language to enable them to have a workable understanding of the varied areas of practice that may impact their own working lives. As well as exploring the law and guidance for each, this book identifies some key learning points and case studies to assist practitioners to better understand the world of public protection in all its guises. This book contains a foreword by Lord Laming, who chaired the public enquiry into Victoria Climbie's death and conducted a progress report of the project of children in England after the death of Baby P. All author royalties from the sales of this book will go to charity.Russell Wate has chosen to donate his royalties to Embrace Child Victims of Crime and Nigel Boulton will donate his royalties to The Victoria Climbie Foundation.

Item Description: Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2016. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 196 x 138 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Around 85 children die each year in the UK due to abuse or neglect. A number of these deaths are later deemed preventable because the child involved was known to either social services or to a health professional. Cases such as those of Baby P and Victoria Climbie highlighted the failings of these organisations, ones set up to safeguard children. It is the responsibility of every health professional worldwide to identify and respond to child abuse and yet that very responsibility is both emotionally and strategically challenging. The Child Protection Practice Manual: Training practitioners how to safeguard children equips professionals with the ability to recognise a child at risk and the knowledge of how to work with a child already suffering abuse. Practical advice is offered on how to navigate the multi-disciplinary processes. Fictional case studies and exercises immerse the reader in scenarios. Building on this, the authors lead readers through learning points, recommendations, and legislation. With new definitions in child protection ranging from child sexual exploitation, gang violence, radicalisation and internet bullying through to female genital mutilation, witchcraft and spirit possession, honour based violence and forced marriage, this book will be a valuable resource for qualified paediatricians and those in training, as well as professionals who have contact with children such as GPs, nurses, health visitors, social workers, midwives, teachers, lawyers, and community workers.
