Working with Children, Young People and Families

Working with Children, Young People and Families

Edited by:

October 2010 | 208 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
Written from a unique interprofessional perspective, this book is an essential introduction to working with children, young people and families. It covers policy, practice and theory, exploring key themes and developments, including:

- poverty and disadvantage

- ethical practice

- child development

- education

- child protection

- children and young people's rights

- doing research.

The book introduces students to a range of theoretical perspectives, links the key themes to the existing and emerging policy and practice context and supports students in engaging with and evaluating the central debates.

With case studies, reflective questions and sources of further reading, this is an ideal text for students taking courses in childhood studies, working with children, young people and families, interprofessional children's services, early years, youth work and social work.
