Description - Safeguarding and Promoting the Well-being of Children, Families and Communities by Jane Scott
While recent major policy initiatives have focused on the assessment and identification of need in children's services, this volume demonstrates the importance of understanding which child welfare interventions are effective and why. From exploring the evidence of the long-term consequences of need for children's well-being through to discussing national initiatives designed to address these issues, contributors from the UK, US and Canada present examples of specific interventions successful in addressing need in the three recognised domains of child development, parenting capacity and family and environmental factors. Demonstrating the need for close inter-agency collaboration and 'joined up' services, Promoting the Well-being of Vulnerable Children will make essential reading for local and central government policy makers; senior managers and practitioners in child welfare agencies; social work academics and students; public and independent sector professionals involved in the assessment of children in need, including social workers, teachers, health visitors and psychologists.
This authoritative series draws from original research and current policy debates to help social work managers, policy makers and researchers to understand and improve the outcomes of services for children and young people in need. Taking an evidence-based approach, these books include children's experiences and analysis of costs and effectiveness in their assessment of interventions, and provide guidance on how to develop more effective policy, practice, and training.
