A thorough grounding in the background, practice and understanding of safeguarding across all ages.
Excellent book that has already been used to plan lessons and teach. It navigates the complexities of safeguarding adults, children and young people using examples from practice. The chapters are clearly laid out and provide prompts that can be used as part of teaching and development.
This is one of the most comprehensive books I have read on safeguarding. It divides the topics up into adult and child safeguarding, gives a coherent account of relevant legislation and tackles types of specific abuse. It has some great activities and is accessible for level 4.
A well informed and clear text, very good range of topic coverage. Very good explanation of legal contexts
A very useful and comprehensive book to have on the reading list of the course for counsellors
I really like this book, it is set out clearly and I think suitable for the Trainee Nursing Associates.
Links to law, ethics, person-focused care, communication and integrated care module content. I also like the 'Did you know?' section which gives additional information.
There are activities to support learning and case studies which enables extending application of theory to practice.
A very useful resource to help students understand development and change throughout life.
Will be recommending this book to students as it covers the whole life course - really good for first year pre-reg but also for post reg safeguarding unit.
Ties in neatly with teaching elsewhere on the programme which focuses of the life course itself. Useful to have comparison between adult and child safeguarding in the same resource.
This is a comprehensive text that is well structured and easy to read. It offers a useful introduction to the area of safeguarding and would be easily understood by first year nursing students across all fields of practice.
