About this item

This guide contains 30 chapters on assessing vulnerable children, young people, and their families in the UK and beyond, with an emphasis on multidisciplinary working and including issues of diversity and practice examples. Chapters discuss general principles and best practice related to assessment, including effective communication, engaging and working with parents, and collaborative practice and participation; the assessment of parenting from various perspectives, including parental capacity to change, substance misuse, mental health, and domestic abuse, and parents with learning difficulties; assessing the child’s health and educational needs and emotional and behavioral development; assessing safety, care, and support needs, including harm caused by emotional abuse and neglect, safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children when physical abuse is suspected, and the identification and prevalence of familial sexual abuse; and assessing the world of the child and family, including poverty, family and community support, and cultural and religious diversity. This edition has been rewritten and expanded to incorporate recent practice, policy, and theoretical developments, such as understanding the lived experience of children, young people, and family members. It includes the assessment of vulnerable children and families requiring early help and new topics related to child maltreatment, such as child sexual exploitation, trafficking, and online abuse. It has new chapters on young people exhibiting harmful sexual behaviors, the needs of young carers, children with complex needs, pre-birth assessment, and assessment of young people leaving care. Contributors are social work and other practitioners from the UK. Annotation ©2019 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
