Protecting children from abuse and neglect is a serious and complex area of social work practice and understanding the critical skills of communicating with and listening to children's voices, and those of their advocates and survivors, is essential. In this new edition of a highly-regarded book, the authors offer a strengthened children's rights perspective and explore four main categories of child abuse - emotional abuse, sexual abuse, neglect and physical abuse. The book also considers legal safeguards and protective processes to increase the creativity and confidence of those undertaking such work. Locating knowledge and skills within a series of case examples from real life practice and serious case reviews, this book is an indispensable resource for students, professionals and others concerned with protecting children. This second edition has been comprehensively revised and updated to include current research evidence and a focus on the neglected protection needs of sexually exploited young people, children in custody, disabled children, young carers and unaccompanied child migrants.

Since launching in 2003, Transforming Social Work Practice has become the market-leading series for social work students. These books use activities and case studies to build critical thinking and reflection skills and will help social work students to develop good practice through learning. Social workers need to have a sound working knowledge of intervention as they are often balancing complex and sometime stressful circumstances with the individual needs of the service users. Also, as there are a wide range of social work interventions in current practice, students will benefit from knowing the advantages and disadvantages of each model and approach. This book on effective social work intervention will help students apply and integrate this knowledge in practice, to critically evaluate different methods and to choose the most effective in any particular set of circumstances. Fully-revised to include new material on value-based practice and direct links to the new Professional Capabilities Framework for Social Work, this second edition is essential reading for all social work students.

"This book provides an accessible overview of the 'transformation' of Children's Services in England. In doing this, it draws on social theory, critical social policy and takes account of developments in other countries. Paul Michael Garrett argues that the many changes which have taken place within, and beyond, Children's Services are related to the politics of neoliberalism which, it is maintained, lie at the core of the Change for Children programme." --Book Jacket.

As New Labour prepares the ground for a second term in government, Liz Davies provides a compelling insider's account of the annihilation of the party's internal democracy. For two years prior to the party conference of September 2000, Davies sat on the highest body of the party, its National Executive Committee. From this unique viewpoint she reveals in riveting detail the extent to which cynical doublethink has come to permeate the party's leadership. Focusing particularly on the frenzied attempts to prevent Ken Livingston from becoming London's next mayor, Davies details how Blair and his acolytes sought to manipulate every detail of the NEC's proceedings, repeatedly blocking open discussion and the counting of votes. With elected representatives rendered powerless in NEC meetings, full-time officials briefed selected journalists on what was being decided, often hours before the meeting itself took place. Davies chronicles Blair's evident discomfort in the face of close questioning at the meetings, and his impatience with even the mildest dissent. She exposes the hollowness of John Prescott's Old Labour credentials as well as the relentless manipulation of Margaret McDonagh, the party's hard-nosed General Secretary. She watches aghast as trade union representatives repeatedly defy positions adopted by their members, and while special interests, notably those representing business, twist policies to suit their needs. Employing a redoubtable independence of mind, as well as verbatim notes kept in each of the meetings, Davies provides an electrifying picture of the systematic corruption of a major political institution.

Experts in their fields, the chapter authors each draw on up-to-date research and integrate it into a body of knowledge that constitutes high levels of established wisdom to produce material whose purpose is to be helpful more than challenging. Invaluable to practitioners since the first edition was published in 2003, it "covers all aspects of how to assess, when to assess and what to assess."Â Community Care. The book's systematic and focussed access to the knowledge that underpins their work is also of value to researchers, academics and policy-makers, and especially useful to anyone undertaking postgraduate or post-qualifying studies. It draws on the published literature from many parts of the English-speaking world. While the attention given in some chapters to local legislation and context is greater than in others, the over-riding emphasis on enabling the exercise of professional judgement in carefully mapped contexts means that the book is useful in all parts of the world. "Thanks to the efforts of all the chapter authors, this book is a significant and worthy successor to the first edition." Martin C. Calder. Fully updated, it: * incorporates responses to all major developments in the field * gives increased emphasis to the importance of addressing risk * includes completely new material, for example on working with parents with a learning disability.
