Introducing Child Care Social Work: Contemporary Policy and Practice

August 2009 | 128 pages | Learning Matters
This book provides a practitioner's perspective on the challenges and developments of working in Child Care Social Work in the current context of organisational and social change. Drawing on the experience of social work practitioners who have undertaken the Post-Qualifying Child Care Specialist Award, the book shows how these challenges are being met in everyday practice, providing a forum to share their knowledge and experience with others and contribute to best practice.
