Everyone will experience a number of transitions throughout their life. Many of these will be positive, others may present challenges. This book addresses significant transitions relevant to policy and practice, covering key transition points in social care from childhood to old age. Drawing on the best available research evidence, Managing transitions highlights issues common to all experiencing transition as well as the dilemmas specific to particular situations. Individual chapters explore what we know about how transition is experienced by young people leaving care and by those with learning disabilities and mental health problems. For young people seeking asylum there are multiple transitions, of age, of country and of culture. Further contributions address the current transformation from service provision to self directed support, the major transition for older people who move to supported living, and the enduring challenges that surround the transition from hospital to community. The practice orientation of this volume is reinforced by the inclusion of evidence-based practice guidance for each of the areas addressed and a strong emphasis throughout on the implications for practice development. It will be of interest to practitioners, policy makers and researchers looking at generic transition challenges and solutions, as well as researchers, academics and students of health and social care and social work.

Review:

This book should be on the shelves of practitioners, scholars and educators in social work, as it so helpfully and neatly brings together much of the research knowledge that underpins practice with vulnerable people experiencing transition in their lives. British Journal of Social Work

This timely publication brings together a significant evidence base on transitions. I strongly recommend it. Jenny Owen, Executive Director, Adults, Health and Community Wellbeing, Essex County Council

This book is unique in its broad focus on different transitions in various contexts, and its exploration of the evidence for support given to people who risk getting 'lost in transition'... recommended to all those interested in improving practical support to people in transition. International Journal of Integrated Care

About the Author:

Alison Petch is Director of Research in Practice for Adults, promoting evidence-informed policy and practice in adult social care. She was previously Director of the Nuffield Centre for Community Care Studies at Glasgow University and has been involved in research across health and social care.
