Review:

"I feel that this text is absolutely ideal for students who are studying at undergraduate level and I find that the text overall is easy to read and is in most parts very concise in conveying concepts and ideas...  I will certainly be recommending it to others, and I also feel that this text would be beneficial to those already working in children's services as it provides a vital review of policy and practice development and how this has been shaped around a variety of different factors, including theory, international and European approaches, in addition to direction from central and localised government."

- Clare Pitkin, Childhood Studies student, Portsmouth University

"Clearly written and very accessible, the information in this book should make it a leader in text books for students but also for seasoned practitioners [...] It forces us to think beyond the structural to the cultural context of our work. [There is a] clarity of how to listen to children and work with them, respecting each one as a unique individual who will make their own mind up about who they will trust and share their thoughts with about important issues in their lives."

- Reviewed by Ruth Stark, Social Worker Manager, SASW in British Association of Managers magazine (Scotland)

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.
