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; and, 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, United Kingdom, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 230 x 152 mm. Brand New Book. 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 # AA39780335234257

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: Taylor & Francis Ltd. Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW PRINT ON DEMAND., Social Work and Child Abuse (2nd Revised edition), Dave Merrick, While social work practice with child abuse is a well-documented topic, this revised edition of "Social Work and Child Abuse" actually challenges and changes the focus of existing literature. Instead of concerning itself with the ways in which the task of preventing and detecting child abuse can be more effectively undertaken, it presents a critical analysis of the task itself. There has been much new guidance and regulation since the first edition of "Social Work and Child Abuse" was published in 1996, making this a timely new edition. With a brand new introduction and conclusion, this fully revised text discusses: the implications of the Victoria Climbie Inquiry, the Laming Report, the Green Paper Every Child Matters and the 2004 Children Act; the 1989 Children Act and the conflicting duties of the social worker to prevent and intervene in child abuse and also to promote 'the family'; and the emergence of official discourses of prevention, treatment and punishment; the 1975 Children Act and the role of moral panic. Concluding with a call for the full implementation of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child to strengthen the child protection system by giving children and young people a much stronger voice, this book is essential reading for all professionals in social and probation work, and for students in social work, social policy and criminology.

Item Description: TSO, United Kingdom, 2003. Mixed media product. Book Condition: New. 300 x 216 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. This is the official report of the independent inquiry into the events leading up to the death of Victoria Climbie, an eight-year-old child who died in hospital in February 2000 of injuries sustained after months of abuse. The report by Lord Laming finds that the death represents a gross failure of the system of public agencies involved to protect vulnerable children from deliberate harm, and this failure is primarily due to widespread organizational malaise . The agencies involved were under-funded, inadequately staffed and often showed a lack of even basic good practice. However, the key issue is one of lack of leadership and accountability shown by senior level management of the agencies involved, rather than just a structural or staffing problem. The legislative framework for child protection is judged to be basically sound; the problem lies more with its implementation. The report contains 108 recommendations for fundamental changes to the way social care, healthcare and police child protection services are organized and managed at national and local level, in order to establish a clear line of accountability in the provision of services for vulnerable children and the support of families. The recommendations include: the creation of a Children and Families Board within the government, to be chaired by a minister of Cabinet rank and to include representatives from other government departments; the creation of a National Agency for Children and Families, with responsibility to advise the Board on policies that affect the well-being of children and families, and the discretion to conduct serious case reviews; and the creation of a Management Board and a Committee at local authority level, involving senior management representatives; and other recommendations, which relate to improvements in the exchange of information within and between agencies: the feasibility of a national children s database to record any contact a child has with any key protection service, service funding issues, staff training and supervision. A CD-ROM about the death of Victoria Climbie in February 2000 is included. Date published - 28 January 2003. Bookseller Inventory # AAU9780101573023
