The Child’s World Third Edition The Essential Guide to Assessing Vulnerable Children, Young People and their Families


Edited by Jan Horwath and Dendy Platt DEC 2018 | £26.99 | 696pp | pb | World rights available | ISBN-9781785921162 | eISBN-9781784503826

Completely updated and expanded edition of THE bestselling guide to assessing vulnerable children, young people and their families. This definitive textbook provides accessible information on best practice for assessing the needs and strengths of vulnerable children and their families. It explores the challenges that practitioners face routinely – with suggestions as to how to address them – as well as the established areas for assessment, of children’s developmental needs, parenting ability and motivation, and socio-economic factors. This new edition has been extended substantially to include recent practice, policy and theoretical developments, such as understanding the lived experience of children, young people, and family members. It also considers children’s neurological development, assessing parental capacity to change, early help assessments, emerging areas

Inspiring, real-life stories of ‘patient leaders’ – everyday heroes

“If there is a ‘Highway Code’ for children’s social work then this book is it. Updated to reflect recent developments it retains its timeless and classic quality. An indispensable text for all social work practitioners and teachers.” –Professor Nick Frost, Leeds Beckett University

who are revolutionising the modern healthcare system. The NHS is in crisis – it’s in record demand, and care services are at breaking point – but what if the solution to rescuing the NHS is in the hands of the patients themselves? In this refreshingly positive and remarkable book, David Gilbert shares the powerful real-life stories of ‘patient leaders’ – ordinary people affected by life-changing illnesses, disabilities, or conditions, who have all gone back into the fray to help change the healthcare

“I really like how ‘The Child’s World, Third Edition’ helpfully links theory, research and legislation to practice, with case examples, tools and guidance… It is completely user friendly, and very child focused throughout. An essential must have for childcare practitioners!” – Danielle Twigg, Principal Social Worker, Children First Northamptonshire

system in necessary and inspiring ways. Charting their diverse journeys – from managing to live with their condition, and their motivation to change the status quo, right through to their successes in improving approaches to health and social care – these moving and courageous stories aim to motivate others to take back control and showcase the pivotal importance of patients as genuine decisionmaking leaders. Filled with hard-won wisdom and everyday heroism, The Patient Revolution challenges current discourse and sets out an empowering vision of how patient leaders can change the future of healthcare.

“Applying attachment theory to close relationships in later life is still a neglected topic... This book goes a long way to stress the importance of recognising that attachment processes carry on until the end of life, when the loss of key attachment figures is more and more frequent. This is a very relevant and readable volume for practitioners from all disciplines.” – Professor David Shemmings OBE PhD, Director of the Attachment and Relationship-Based Practice Project

“This forensically detailed book gets to the DNA of reminiscence and life review... It will be particularly useful for scholars and practitioners interested in the theory of reminiscence, drawing as it does on studies concerning the rationale and benefits of making sense of our lives, linking past to present and reconciling previous experiences.” – Ruth Eley, Dementia Action Liverpool

This book, written by expert practitioners from 11 different world faiths, helps health and social care-givers to articulate and reflect on how their own faith informs the way they work. It also helps develop understanding of what shapes the choices made by their colleagues and care-recipients from other faith traditions. The book will equip care practitioners to be reflective in relation to matters of ethics, faith and care and to feel more confident regarding their own, and their colleagues, underpinning beliefs.

Practical advice for professionals working with transgender people who have survived sexual violence and abuse. This book provides practical advice for professionals working with transgender (including non-binary) people who have survived any form of sexual violence or abuse. It gives professionals an understanding of the impact and trauma of sexual violence on trans people, as well as the additional difficulties they face accessing services that have traditionally been designed to serve cisgendered clients. The authors reveal specific issues faced by trans people as they recover from traumatic sexual experiences, and what steps

This text articulates what it’s like to work with this client group, providing insights and guidance, and lays out an integrative model for practice.

“Sarah Van Gogh has written this text with great intelligence, with tremendous sensitivity, and with distinct literary flair. Readers will be extremely moved by her unique compassion for male survivors of abuse and trauma, and clinical practitioners will learn a great deal from her many years of experience.” – Professor Brett Kahr, Senior Fellow, Tavistock Institute of Medical Psychology, and Senior Clinical Research Fellow in Psychotherapy and Mental Health, Centre for Child Mental Health

professionals and organisations can take to meet the needs of the trans community. They also take a critical look at what can be done to reduce discrimination, particularly as many services for sexual violence tend to enforce strict gender segregation which can be exclusionary for trans clients. This book helps mitigate the traumatic effects of sexual violence on trans individuals, by recommending effective responses for all levels of service delivery, from organisational policies to advice for front-line professionals.

“This excellent book, based in extensive service provision experience and academic expertise, should be a touchstone for sexual violence organisations, scholars and anyone interested in understanding the challenges transgender survivors face.” – Alison Phipps, Professor of Gender Studies, Sussex University
