Editorial Reviews

Review

Children's agency, children's welfare is an important and challenging book. It demonstrates the importance of the nature and quality of interactions for influencing child development and that these are central issues for the way child welfare workers and agencies operate and are organised. Nigel Parton, NSPCC Professor in Applied Childhood Studies, University of Huddersfield, England


This book offers a lively and well-developed analysis of the multi-level concept of agency in child welfare, and explores in an original manner the importance of dialogical and narrative approaches in social work practices. This is useful reading for anyone involved in these practices. Kirsi Juhila, Professor of Social Work, University of Tampere, Finland


This is a wide-ranging exploration of child welfare, based in psychology but drawing ideas from across the human sciences. It provides a strong argument for the centrality of dialogic, narrative and language approaches to understanding children, families and their interactions with child welfare professionals. Christopher Hall, School of Medicine and Health and Wolfson Research Institute, Durham University
