From the Back Cover:

‘Working together is now a fundamental principle of social policy, children services, and professional practice with children.   At last, here is a book that comprehensively reviews the opportunities and challenges. It will be welcomed by all professionals who work with children and young people, and especially those responsible for their training.’

- Martin Woodhead, Professor of Childhood Studies, the Open University

‘... brings together a wide range of leading specialists in policy, practice and research to provide a comprehensive, relevant and very 21st century source book on children’s services... We need this book to help us all in our aspiration to provide a better life for vulnerable children, and indeed all young people in our societies. ‘Connectedness’, and the barriers to connection, is the key theme.'

- Andrew Cooper, Professor of Social Work, University of East London and the Tavistock Clinic, London

'A comprehensive and well researched compendium that examines the range of perspectives, theories, and approaches relevant to providing the holistic services necessary to achieve positive outcomes for children, families and society.'

- Martha J. Holden, Residential Child Care Project, Bronfenbrenner Center for Translational Research, Cornell University

This comprehensive and insightful new textbook brings together specialist chapters by authors widely recognised as leaders in their field. Covering policy and practice, theory and research, the book is relevant to all those working in children’s services. The text combines practical information on working with children and their families, in a wide range of contexts, along with critical analysis of both policy and practice.

The text covers:

  • Children’s and family issues
  • Children’s perspectives on relationships with professionals, citizenship and participation
  • Key findings and concepts from recent research on children’s issues
  • Insights into  the factors which help  promote or hinder collaboration within agencies, across organisations and between professionals
  • Legal and policy frameworks including variations within each of the nations of the UK

With an emphasis on working collaboratively with children and young people, other professionals and the community, and on developing an holistic approach to working with children, this is an essential resource for anyone studying on courses in social work, education, health, social policy, law and politics, and for all those with an interest in children’s services.
