'This is a book that actively encourages the reader to reflect on their background and how this influences their view of individual children, families and fellow professionals. It is an ideal read for those working with children and young people from birth to 19 years old in any aspect of children's services' - Early Years Educator
This is an accessible and clearly written no-nonsense guide to integrated working across children's services.
Popular reading material for learners working towards completing a Foundation Degree in Children, Young People and their Services- module Promoting the Welfare of Children and Young People
Good book, I have recommended that it be put onto our reading list to support working in partnership in early years module.
An excellent analysis of effective multi-agency practice based upon research into real world experiences of a multi-agency strategy.
A highly knowledgeable book that enables students to see integrated working from a different perspective. Highly recommended!
A nice easy to read, clear text that explains how integrated services work, good practical applications useful in seminar sessions
An excellent book that clearly explains the services involved in the Early Years. The book presents many activities that can be used during seminars.
Currently recommended fror BA Childhood Studies. It is good to have a text that acknowledges the Scottish setting within its overview of policy. John is clearly very knowledgeable and this text has led me to buy and recommend his most recent text as well.
I will now be recommending both these texts to our year 3 B.Ed students for their early years placement where they investigate integrated working.
I looked at this book with a first year student who has considerable experience; she felt, and I agree, that this lays out the basic structures of multi agency working in a way that will be very useful for less experienced students.
A great text for all those working with children and young people. A highly recommended text for students and staff in the sector.
Accessible and supports many perspectives.
This is an excellent text which will be used extensively to inform sessions.
Very useful, up to date and accessible.
a valuable supplementary reading book for both our nursing and social work students
This is an excellent book for students, clearly written and informative.
Excellent and informative book in the context of multi-professional working
Useful text book which can be used on a variety of programmes such as Education Studies, Health and Social Welfare and Social Work. Contains relevant up to date material.
Interesting updated discussion on issues of integrated services in England. The text provides examples from practice. It helps students to develop a more reflective insight into the issues of working with other professionals
An excellent book that is well structured, and accessible to read. It is very relevant to a range of modules from level 4 through to 6 on the Early Childhood Studies course.
