Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The new edition of Exploring Child Welfare reflects the author's strong practice perspective and incorporates new developments in welfare reform and child welfare services.

The book provides a practical and thorough introduction to child welfare and welfare services. The author's strength is her ability to connect the underlying theories and systems of child welfare with real-life practice experience, stemming from over thirty years' experience in working with children and families. Includes a new focus on attachment theory and its utilization in child welfare services.

For child welfare or social workers.

This textbook looked at different types of families and their needs and then suggested specific types of therapy and intervention based upon those needs. I really liked the understanding that one size does not fit all.
