'This book helpfully covers the broad range of issues that home-school workers are likely to negotiate on a day to day basis. They give a realistic account of the challenges of working with parents from a school context, outlining a range of approaches, interventions, case studies and information to help practitioners provide effective support.' - Jo Hook, Transition Information Sessions (TIS) Consultant - Family and Parenting Institute

With the opening of Children's Centres and the implementation of the Every Child Matters agenda, multi-agency working is now a reality. This book will provide advice and guidance on successful strategies to employ when working with parents and interdisciplinary staff.

Using case studies to illustrate best practice across a range of age groups, the book looks at strategies for dealing with the effects of the following issues on children:

o domestic violence

o bereavement and loss

o learning difficulties and special educational needs

o neglect and poverty

o anger and social, emotional and behavioural difficulties

o addictions within the family.

There is advice on working directly with children and examples are cited from children from 0 to 19.

This book is an essential read for all those involved in the education and care of children.
