Designed as a practical guide, The Handbook of Residential Care presents a unique combination of real examples and case studies, analysis, guidance and reflective discussion. It brings together all areas of residential work and all levels of involvement in it, with an emphasis of direct personal work and everyday experiences. With checklists and action plans, the Handbook will promote effectiveness among residential workers - through self-management, building relationships, creating helpful organisation, and resisting bureaucratic and impersonal organisation.
Invaluable to all practitioners, team leaders and managers in residential care, the Handbook provides a wealth of new ideas and many challenges to established policy and practice.

Synopsis:

Recent residential care revelations, new legislation and policy directions (The Children's Act, Community Care), and the introduction of new training courses mean that residential care practice is under national focus. The Handbook of Residential Care addresses the particular problems experienced by residential staff by bringing together many areas of work, different jobs and responsibilities, in a variety of perspectives and setings and addresses the challenges they face. In this practical guide the author has brought together a unique combination of real examples and case studies, analysis, guidance and reflective discussion to rpesent a complete examination of working in a residential setting, both for the elderly and for children. John Burton examines the fundamentals of the work such as management of time, keeping a diary, first contact with a new resident, creating the right environment, building relationships with children, and management styles and gives specific examples of the day-to-day running of a residential centre such as the instigation of a non-smoking policy and the management of bed times in children's residential care.
