Book Description: Russell House Publishing Ltd, United Kingdom, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 210 x 143 mm. Brand New Book. Managers must be held to account for failings in childcare services, and must take responsibility for the provision of strong leadership and the effective and appropriate operation of their departments. High profile tragedies and scandals (Victoria Climbie and Baby P, for example in England, and mirrored elsewhere) remind us of the crucial importance of striving for good management. But they also show that it can easily be forgotten amidst the higher profile debates in academia, politics and media over the broad sweep of government policy and the arresting detail of neglect, abuse and death. Undoubtedly practice and management are inextricably linked; yet, like both ends of a telescope, they have an entirely different view of the world. This book views pertinent and emerging issues in child welfare and protection from a management perspective, with the aspiration of helping management do better. Using practical examples from both Britain and Ireland, it challenges managers, potential managers, supervisors, policy makers, academics and students to view issues from perspectives that are outside mainstream thinking, but which are essential to effective protection, safeguarding, support, care and welfare.in families, in care and in communities. For managers who wish to reflect upon strategic issues, supervisors who must implement strategic and policy directives, policy makers who need to understand the impact of their decisions on the service provider as well as the service user it also provides a useful reference for those undertaking and delivering post-graduate education and training. It places child welfare and protection work in the context of the political climate, societal norms and professional values within which it is performed. It focuses on the evolving issues of globalisation, family structure, the re-balancing of the relationship with families, and the rights of children. It: addresses the management aspects of determining need in an environment that has conflicting demands; distinguishes between welfare and protection issues, the former often being misinterpreted as the latter by referees and service providers alike; encourages managers to think outside the box to look for creative and innovative solutions; and, promotes the concept of managing for results by using management information to design programmes that work best. It: explores the theme of partnership in its broadest sense, from working with individuals to engaging communities in an effort to maximise effective outcomes; makes a case for children to be protected from State care, and protected while in substitute care; and, depicts staff welfare as a management issue and presents ways to protect staff from the ill effects of working in such a pressurised and stressful environment. Delivering services in the context of reforms and expectations requires structural changes as well as changes in the roles and responsibilities of individuals, this book explores the managers role in leading staff to rise to these challenges.

Book 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

Book 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.

Book 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

Book 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

Book 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.
