5.0 out of 5 stars A challenging and uplifting read! 19 July 1999
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
If you work in the field of Child Protection/Family Services and feel discouraged and/or burned out, this is a must read. I read it on vacation last week, I could not put it down! It is well written and provides lots of case examples. The material is especially appealing and accessible if one is familiar with Solution Focused Brief Therapy principles. Bravo and well done to the authors!

A thought provoking and practical guide to anyone working in Social care, Health, Education and Child Protection. It offers a solution focused approach but with the worker and client at the heart of practice. Contains useful case studies and tools that are easy to follow, making connections between theory and practice. It considers what are we worried about, exploring this as at all angles to find solutions that will help to keep children safe.

A must for all social workers,social care workers, health professionals and educationists......Signs of Safety offers a 'common sense' approach to Child Protection and Prevention.

5.0 out of 5 stars Transformative 25 Oct 2009
By J. Gillies - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Our child welfare agency has purchased over 150 copies of this book and all of our staff have participated in a book study. We are involved with consultation with jurisdictions that have been implementing the SOS work for years. It is a breath of fresh air and I would highly recommend it to anyone in the child protection field.
