This is a comprehensive introduction to social work with children that integrates theoretical debates with a full and sensitive exploration of practice concerns. It systematically examines all the common and pressing issues in child welfare and considers the implications of recent research, legislation and policy shifts for current and future practice. Balanced, wide-ranging and highly readable, with plenty of case study examples and other practice elements to foster reflection and understanding, it provides a sound knowledge base in the child welfare field and lays an excellent foundation for further skill development.
