Review:

I found the presentation to be simple and free of jargon, and much thought has been given to the layout in order to make the information accessible. While the book has been designed for students of the Open University, I recommend it as having relevance for all practitioners working in this field Madeleine Henley, Professional Social Work

The book provides a robust understanding of the theories and research underpinning communication with children and shows how this knowledge can inform practice. Madeleine Henley, Professional Social Work, July 2008

Working with children and their families is a serious and often complex undertaking for professionals. This book encourages students and practitioners to reflect, within both practical and theoretical perspectives, on the key issues of developing effective communication and participation with children in processes that may significantly affect their lives. Maurice Crozier, educational psychologist
