Collaborative Practice With Vulnerable Children and Their Families (Paperback) (June Thoburn & Julie
about this item
The focus of the book is effective collaborative practice at the ‘tertiary’ level: that is, with children and their families and carers receiving a ‘targeted’ service because they are at risk of suffering significant harm, or needing out-of home placement. The evidence is clear that the wellbeing of parents and children across the age range who are experiencing complex difficulties will continue to deteriorate unless they receive high quality single-disciplinary but well-co-ordinated services from a range of professionals. A ‘team around the family’ approach is now recognised as essential for the effective provision of support, educative, therapy and placement services.
