Most Helpful Customer Reviews

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Kim Holt on 30 Mar. 2014
Format: Paperback
The strength of this book is that the child remains the focus throughout. In a climate where social work practice is influenced by targets and timeframes, Helen importantly keeps the focus on good practice with children and their families.

An excellent book!
