For the busy frontline practitioner with little time to plan ahead, this hands-on guide presents imaginative and unique methods to engage families and caregivers throughout the process of assessing vulnerable children.

Setting the context for each area of assessment, including strengths and resilience, risk and needs and the child's lived experience, the book then describes a series of activities or creative techniques to engage young people and their caregivers within this area. It outlines the materials required, aims of the exercise and method. It includes 'handy hints' based upon practical experience, making it a quick go-to guide for every day practice.

It encourages practitioners to focus on building safety into relationships and to adapt their approach to take into account the impact of trauma and abuse on an individual's capacity to engage and to communicate verbally.

Review:

The author has produced a book that is written with insight and deep understanding and appreciation of direct work with children, young people and their families. This text will appeal to a broad readership that will include social work student, experienced social workers and practitioners working with children. Katie continues to bring depth to this area with a range of tools and frameworks that can be used to strengthen the voices of children in their plans and assessments. Thank you Katie, a must read and it is on my book shelf. Author: Lee Pardy-Mclaughlin, Coventry City Council

As someone who has been through the care system I appreciate the impact decisions made during assessments can have on children and young people.
This book offers practitioners creative quality tools which will benefit practitioners and families alike. I encourage all practitioners involved with families to have a read and to use the learning to make the difference to children and young people. We deserve this!

Author: Shianne Kinchen, a care experienced young person working with Coventry City Council

Practitioners, assessing vulnerable children and young people, must engage with them in order to understand their experiences, wishes and feelings. The wide range of imaginative activities included in this book provide a rich resource for busy workers. The activities enable practitioners to engage with children and young people in innovative and meaningful ways. Author: Jan Horwath, Emeritus Professor of Child Welfare in the Department of Sociological Studies at the University of Sheffield
