Direct work with vulnerable children; playful activities and strategies...

I have just started studying towards my MSc in play and therapeutic play and I work intensively with families and their children where the parents have an issue with substances that effect their parenting ability.

I would recommend this book to any practitioner.

This review is from: Direct Work with Vulnerable Children: Playful Activities and Strategies for Communication (Paperback)
This is a great book, simple but effective. It has lots of tips and acitivities that can be completed with children, without having to buy expensive resources. Within a few days of buying the book I was able to put some of the ideas into practice. I have bought other books that have been more expensive and a lot less effective. I would recommend this to both new and old practitioners within childcare, therapeutic and social care settings - I am sure you will gain something from it, I know i have.

This review is from: Direct Work with Vulnerable Children: Playful Activities and Strategies for Communication (Paperback)
I have received some good ideas from this book. However, it was not as easy to follow as some other similar books. I guess they were not the sort of activities that I was looking to undertake with the young people I was working with. That is not to say that it will not be a useful book in the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent read, 27 April 2013
This review is from: Direct Work with Vulnerable Children: Playful Activities and Strategies for Communication (Paperback)
Audrey and Helen both have long experience of working with children. Good to have a book written by front line practitioners for front line practioners. After 20 years of working with children I got some great ideas and pointers.

Must have for new and experienced practitioners.

This review is from: Direct Work with Vulnerable Children: Playful Activities and Strategies for Communication (Paperback)
Really interesting book, the author is very creative and dedicated and obviously spends a lot of time preparing for her work with children. I like the way it's written and the success stories included with each exercise make for an enjoyable read.
