A very helpful, comprehensive and up to date text' - Michael Marriott, Senior Lecturer, School of Health and Social Care, University of Greenwich, UK 'A useful text that provides both breadth and depth in relation to work with children, young people and families. Each chapter provides up-to-date materials and the further reading and other pedagogical features are well presented. It's also good to see the UK being represented in a text rather than just England & Wales.' Steve Hothersall, 2nd Year Social Work coordinator, School of Applied Social Studies, Robert Gordon University, UK 'This book offers a very clear and comprehensive overview of the theoretical context to working with children and young people.' - Billie Oliver, Senior Lecturer, School of Health, Community & Policy Studies, University of the West of England, UK 'The text provides a broad perspective of key issues for students studying the Every Child Matters module, as well as those embarking on practice placements. It is well written with excellent links and references to other key texts. The use of learning outcomes in each chapter is extremely helpful.' - Dave Mason, Lecturer - Children Young People and their Carers, Faculty of Health, Staffordshire University, UK 'For Childhood Studies students who are still exploring different career options, this a great and comprehensive text - it works well alongside a course that is so multidisciplinary, and helps students see the breadth of perspectives, and opportunities.' - Anne-Marie Smith, Lecturer (Childhood Studies), School of Education, Bangor University, UK
