Social Work with Children and Families

Getting into Practice


This new edition of a core text provides up-to-date information on recent developments in social work with children and families including the consequences of the Care Standards Act and the Human Rights Act. The authors also discuss new approaches to looking after and supporting children, incorporating study texts and exercises based on the Assessment Framework. A clear and easy-to-use format provides information on such subjects as the family, parenting, abuse, assessment and going to court. This book encourages social workers to know themselves, to recognise their strengths and limitations and to prepare themselves for getting `into practice' with children and families.
