Although a useful book, the students found it somewhat difficult to access. It didnt seem particularly relevant to the assignment content.
great layout, very informative, helpful links to further reading
This book has been very useful when delivering my current module on positive relationships. The students had to read around the subject of multi agency working. The information contained within it is easy to access and interesting and relevant to read.
A great book that provide students with the understanding of how to develop professional practice through collaborative working.
This book is reccomended for quite a few of the modules that I teach. It looks at many areas of multiprofessional working. It is clearly set out and easy to dip in and out of.
This book is highly relevant to students studying how multi-professional teams work.
Excellent text that allows students to fully explore multi-agency working and issues that can arise through the process of working together. Very good links to evidnced based research
A good core text for my module where students are studying multi-professional contexts for working in child care practice.
Very good, relevant and informative.
