Reflection points, workplace activities and professional development planners are all included and these challenge readers and students to critically engage with theory in their own practice. The book focuses on the key areas of knowledge that all those working with children are required to study, and places them firmly in the context of working together to support children and young people.

Useful addition to current literture as realtively little on collaborative working with chldren and young people
Excellent text that really gets across the importance of integrated working, keeping children and young people at the centre of promoting strong 'working together'.
Useful book to understand integrated working and challenges faced by children services. Highly recvommended for health visitor students and practitioners in this field.
A useful resource for supporting those who want to work in this sector.
Generally seems to 'hit the spot' with education support staff - especially for experienced practitioners now reflecting on their work roles through undergraduate study. This book not only sets out to use relevant theory as a means of better understanding practice - as with how children learn, for example, but also demystifies issues around policy, quality assurance and professionalism in which all education practitioners are enmeshed... Overall, this is an accessible and relevant springboard into informed professional refection.
