Social Work With Young People in Care : Looking After Children in Theory and Practice Paperback / softback
by Nigel Thomas
This text offers a clear and balanced introduction to social work with children and young people who are looked after away from home.
The book explains the context in which children are looked after, the range of services available, and the research evidence, laying the groundwork for developing good practice skills. It emphasises the importance of listening to children and to issues of disability and ethnicity.
Theoretically informed but practice-oriented throughout, this is a much-needed guide to social work with children in care for students, practitioners, educators and policy-makers.
