Children and Families in Communities : Theory, Research, Policy and Practice, Hardback Book

Children and Families in Communities : Theory, Research, Policy and Practice Hardback

Part of the Wiley Child Protection & Policy Series series

Description

In the past decade the relationship between communities, children and families has inspired a wealth of research and policy initiatives because of a growing belief that the breakdown of families and communities is a significant factor in social problems, including child abuse and juvenile crime.

The latest policy initiatives to tackle social problems have therefore targeted communities as well as high risk families.

This title amalgamates the latest research on the relationship between children, families and communities and explores policy and practice implications.

Material for practitioners and community development workers is also be included.

The book is divided in to three parts: 1) theory 2) the effect of community on children, parents and families 3) interventions and policy implications.
