Description - Working with Children and Families by Robert Adams
Across 30 chapters, a team of experienced teachers and practitioners introduce the fundamental professional issues concerning children, young people and their families in the 21st century. 'Working with Children and Families' explores the diverse contexts in which children develop, and the policies and practices that directly affect them - essential knowledge for effective practice.
Offering a multidisciplinary approach, this inclusive text gives a broad range of perspectives to support the study of children and childhood. Take a look inside to discover more about:
Key policies and agendas: introduces the policies, agendas and government guidance that serve as the foundation of children's services
Contemporary issues: tackles complex topics such as anti-discriminatory and ethical practice, child protection and safeguarding
Reflective practice: offers reflective activities throughout to help you engage, understand and apply knowledge in practice
Diversity: helps you understand the variety of backgrounds and experiences children may have - from sociological, psychological, educational and cultural perspectives
Integrative working: focuses holistically on the child, rather than on specific professional approaches, offering insight into important themes in all areas of work with children.
This text offers a broad basis from which to launch into any area of work or study involving children, including early years, social work, education, social policy, nursing, sociology and childhood studies. It is great introductory reading for foundation and undergraduate degree level students.
