Description - Working with Abused Children by Celia Doyle
Working with abused children is a demanding and emotionally charged area of practice in which practitioners must balance sensitivity with statutory obligation. This thoroughly updated new edition emphasises the need for a central focus on the child and their perspectives, to ensure safe and effective work with children and their families.
Opening with the foundations of good practice, the book goes on to capture the perspectives of children through moving first-hand accounts from abuse survivors. Woven through with frank narratives from the author's own practice experience, it discusses the importance of assessment and explores interventions through individual, family and group work.
Keeping the voice of the child at its heart, this edition features:
? all-new chapters on transitions from childhood to adulthood, and on the emotional impact for practitioners in the field, including coping strategies and practice guidance
? new perspectives on practice within the context of current policy, including the Every Child Matters legacy and the Munro Review
? a range of supportive features, such as points for reflection, practice examples and further reading resources.
Since the first edition in 1989, the rhetoric and terminology on safeguarding children have changed beyond recognition. Yet the need to understand and accommodate the abused child's perspective remains. Working with Abused Children therefore continues to be a valuable resource for students, educators and practitioners working within this challenging field.
